    Hi,
    I would like to buy or otherwise get my hands on plans for a Tornado or similar. I have the Houlton plans though would idealy like to get a copy of the official plans and templates.

    I get the feeling that pro builders have plans well guarded and that they are not available to the public (home builder). Any ideas?

    Kind Regards
    Brent

    the Gougeoun Brothers book on West System has some information on the Tornado; the on-line plans have a page that shows the expanded panel shape with dimensions in mm.

    Plans for the Shark are available through http://www.sharkcatamaranclass.com , and until the Tornado came out, the Shark was considered to be a pretty fast cat.

    Best regards
