    We're still trying to locate and contact Jeff. It is worrisome but old friends are on the trail, hopefully the plans will resurface in time.

    Dry rotting to where you could see fiberglass

    Dry rotting to where you could see fiberglass. Is this a boat (46' Norman Cross MK ll) worth trying to salvage?

    Where is Jeff Turner ?

    I hope Jeff is in good health.

    The domain of his website is still active and the front page up.... it's just that the following-up pages are gone. The domain was updated latest in April 2015 for prolonging at least one year (till April 2016).

    For all who are interested in the NC plans maybe it is helpfully to know the alternatively email address (which is public). As Domain owner Jeff is listed with following address and email:

    Jeff Turner
    street: 6662 Alexandria Dr.
    city: Huntington Beach
    state/province: CA
    postal code: 92647
    country: US
    phone: +1.7143734341
    email: jetcross18@verizon.net

    Jeff's study plans look like that of the broschure for the Norman Cross 18, see PDF attachment (it was a free download and part of an interview Jeff gave in 2010 for the blog site "Small Trimarans").

    Looks like a bizzare change to the bows of the amas.

    I would think it would hold a more true course this way. They also added a stern fin to the AMA's quite interesting.

    There is so much hull(s) in the water anyway it cant help but hold a course.
    Silly, IMHO.

    But it's just a barge anyway.

    I had a friend of his try to contact Jeff with no success. If he isn't responding to friends and family things don't look good for the plans.

    The Mariners Museum in Newport News Virginia does have some of the Cross plans in a collection donated by Nobby Clark's son from England.

    Its not a racer more of a cruiser so but it definitely has more weight to it and its not 200k but 100k. Great profile from the front. One could mistake it for a barge from the side. Its definitely not and not built like the flyin hawaiian catamaran with home depot parts but a Norman Cross tri and built in 2010. It has my vote. If i can get the money together i may be on it soon. Fingers crossed ...
    Cheers
