    Hello Jemstruct;
    In 2007 I had contacted Jeff about my Cross 28. He came down and brought me some drawings for a repair I needed to do on the mast step. I have not had any further contact with him and now I am residing in Florida.

    I sold my Cross 28 to a friend and he is sailing quite abit. I miss that Tri!
    I hope Jeff surfaces again because he has most of the plans for Norm Cross Trimarans.

    Before I got the Cross, I had a Piver Nimble with a Cross Keel. That was a great sailing Trimaran...A lot of Piver Trimarans have added the Keel addition and it really makes a difference I think. (based on my experience with my Nimble of course.)

    Kelly.

    That was back in 2011. What is the current situation with Jeff.

    In 1977 I sailed with Norm on his Cross 32R. I was very impressed with the balance,handling, silky motion and speed. A delightful boat indeed. :D

    I was able to contact Jeff earlier this year and late last year and get some study plans. There are a couple plan sets I want down the road. I reached him finally by connecting with Don Sandstrom whose family owns the Cross 40 Anduril that has been all over the world. Don is a Cruising Forum member.

    Jeff had a couple different emails so if the official channels don't work send me a PM and I'll PM back the last one that worked for me. And give Jeff time, it can take awhile.

    Inspected Norman Cross trimarans

    Does anyone have any information on whether any of the Norman Cross Trimarans were inspected to carry passengers? We have a Norman Cross tri built by South Bay Multihulls and are converting to a passenger carrying vessel and any information is appreciated. I understand there was a vessel in Hawaii but having a hard time trying to find info. Thank you

    I had a Piver Nugget and put a 24ft Cross LAR keel on it.
    It transformed the boats performance to windward and also enabled a fold down double berth where the daggerboard box had been. :D
    Any further news of Jeff Turner?

    Contact information requested

    The http://www.crossmultihulls.com website no longer works. Can someone tell me how to get a hold of Jeff Turner, so that I can order plans for the N. Cross designs.

    Hello Hippi, welcome to the forum. I've asked a friend of Jeff Turner to try and find out what is going on but even he has only had sporadic communication with Jeff recently. Hopefully this will get sorted out soon.
