    I just learned that we lost one of the great pioneers of modern multihulls: Rudy Choy passed away Tuesday evening, September 13, in Honolulu.

    I wish they would make the old plans available, most of those boats would still sail past the current condo cats. His book was an early inspiration. His son Barry is still designing.
