    Between the pop bottom and lifting hatch all those headroom bases get covered but sailing doesn't suffer. Maybe you could track it down to see if the buyer still wants it? Sometimes people get bored of a project.

    You mean the sango ? Yes maybe. It was on gumtree and I don't have the sellers details.

    There is another way to get headroom in a sango. Make the optional bolt on coach roofs for the hulls taller. I don't know how Mr Woods would feel about it, but elf has 1.8 headroom and the roofs could mimic the profile of the cuddy.

    appears to be no side deck access to the bow?
    over the top only?

    As usual my opinion is worth what you paid for it, and here it is.

    I had a J5. In my opinion the side decks are dangerous and your far better off without them.

    The problem on mini bridgedeck cats like this is that the side decks are barely more than toe rails, or else they encroach on the cabin too much. They are too narrow for stanchions and in any sort of water the chances of you slipping and falling off are just huge.

    In my opinion (again) your better off without them so there is no temptation. Going over the top on a boat like that is not hard provided it's designed with that in mind, and you take advantage of the cats large beam and large flat cabin top to make a safe move forward.

    Again this is what they did with the little barrier and I think it was an improvement on the jarcat/red barron etc

    Attached should be a photo of a little barrier. The trimaran I include because I am pretty sure I used to own the center hull of that boat. It was a modified tremolino, it's interesting what they did with it...

    Hi,

    Is there something in particular about seascape that your pointing out ?

    He has the stowaway 7.5 aswell.

    http://spiriteddesigns.com.au/stowaway7_5

    I know this isn't very nice but I have to say I properly hate those boats. I got the study plans for the 7.5 and it's a truly awful design imo. Deep V hulls, overly stylised topside. I really don't like anything about them. As usual just my opinion...

    Yep,
    another one of those.
    Transportable, or even better, trailerable, accommodations for a couple or a small family, head/shower... and easy and fast on the water.
    Pls, keep us informed, when you find it, I would love upgrade from the SW 24.

    I never said anything about fast.

    The SW is a nice enough boat but it is what it is. You might like to take a close look at Mr Woods eagle:

    http://sailingcatamarans.com/index.php/designs-2/2-catamarans-under-25ft/455-eagle-24

    While drawn in ply it can be built in chined foam. Similar size package to your seawind but offering a lot more comfort, accommodations and it'll certainly be a lot drier.

    I don't recall sailing a seawind 24 but I would think performance might be similar.

    Just thinking aloud here but one way of getting more headroom in small boats is to go deeper rather than higher, Wharrams do this and to a certain extent Horstmans, this means the ends are usually submerged and wetted surface goes up a lot but windage is kept down. Swings and roundabouts again.

    yes, but the relatively low speeds means that wetted area may not be so critical?
