    Hi, the drawings for the Siren 8.4 cat are finished except for a few details (chain plates and centreboard). I am now going back to my retirement and finishing off the Scarab 32 tri prototype. Details are on the web site <www.teamscarab.com.au>

    Thank you for your efforts. I will be purchasing a set of plans. Will the chainplates and centre boards plans come as an automatic update to those who purchase early?

    I'd like to see a lines drawing of the Scarab 32 tri.

    Hi Old Multi, the additional plans will be emailed to the purchaser when finished.

    Ray would the fastenings lend themselves to trailering it?
    What is the beam of the hull itself? It looks like it might be a bit much for all on one trailer wide.

    Hi Skyking1, the hulls are about 1675 beam each so would require some permit or other to trailer. All beam connections are bolted so it is possible to demount and move around but would be a big job requiring a few helpers.

    That makes sense Ray, those look like very nice spaces and that would be an oversized load at 11' in the US.

    @skyking1 If you transported them with one hull upside down they might nestle ?

    I can tow in my state up to 11' wide with a monthly or annual permit and no pilot cars. The trick is crossing state lines.

    What is your maximum length ? A really long trailer is unwieldy but if it gets it done...you could put them on bow to bow and part overlap to shorten the load.

    The plans are cheap enough. Might be worth buying them just for a look.
