    Anybody know where I can find the image Rick W (AKA Guest625101138) posted on here about 2 or 3 years ago?

    I've "Searched" and looked through a few old threads but just can't find it.

    It was a low drag (surprise, surprise) tri, but motor driven, not human powered.

    I looked in his Gallery but it's been deleted (the whole gallery).

    Thought somebody might recall the thread off the top of their pretty little head.

    This, perhaps: http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/bo...electro-plywood-cruiser-22408.html#post200859 (also post #20 and others). However, if you intend to offer it as a proposal to our friend with the old 18 hp Evinrude, I have to put a note of warning here - it is an extremely unseaworthy series of designs. Good for playing around in oil-flat protected waters with a good rescue service, and probably nothing else.

    On the other side, I am quite impressed by this series of designs posted by Eric Deborde: http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/boat-design/trimaran-motorboat-stabilized-monohull-29665.html

    Thanks Daiqu, I'll check it out.

    No, that wasn't my intension at all, I only asked over there as it seemed a viewer might know.

    I have something completely different in mind.

    Thanks again,

    You're on the ball there BPL.

    Looked at the thread there Daiqu and you were spot on.

    My idea wasn't what I thought it might be, but thanks again for helping out, I really appreciate it.
