    From SA-the Adventure tri:

    After almost 10 months of hard work and probably a thousand hours or more, we finally got the Adventure Tri 23 painted and assembled on Dave Peterson's well made custom trailer. We want to sincerely thank Harry for a weekend of spray painting! Next steps are finish the nets, finish the rigging, get the aluminum parts powdercoated, paint some stripes on her, weld a few more mast raising devices to the trailer, and launch her! Mark

    UPDATE: Mark told me today that the boat is designed to fly the main hull! I think that is very cool. There is another excellent tri by Henrik-I think 21'-that has just been launched and also flies the main hull. Great direction for small sport tri's to go,in my opinion....

    Feel free to post, and perhaps mention it is a blank canvas, and we are looking for sail sponsors. Here are the specs:
    LOA - 23'
    BOA - 16'
    Sailing weight - under 850 with sails, motor, all running rigging
    Carbon mast height - 31'

    Obviously an incredibly nice looking boat. So not to compare it to my pile of old wood, but, my numbers are:

    If it flies the main hull I am going to spank it!!

    LOA 23' 9''
    BOA 18.5'
    Sailing weight - under 850 with sails, motor, all running rigging
    OK, it's just a Hobie mast and really bad sails - are you happy!

    Oh, and a wooden trailer. Just started patching the frame yesterday after 20 years in the weather, one 1x4x 10 ft piece of wood needs replacing, and a few small spots...

    Wow, what a awesome looking boat! Look forward to seeing her get wet and going wild. This is the sort of thing i'd like to do next after my power tri.
