    wondering if anyone has used the Prindle hulls for building the Strike 18 tri? do they have enough buoyancy? I know they don't have dagger boards but are those needed on the trimaran?

    If you mean the Prindle 16 then yes, it's a popular choice. Some people sail without the optional daggerboard/centreboard but others have fitted it. Your choice. The drawings for both boards are on my website on the Plan Updates pages

    Hope that helps

    For others, more on the Strike 18 here

    and lots of videos on my Woods Designs youtube channel eg here
