    The Simpson catalogue was one of the first I ever bought 8 years or so ago when I started my multihull journey. I know many of his larger (> 10metre) bridgedeck designs were built, but there were a bunch of smaller designs in the catalogue that had little information available, that I found appealing. It was about this time that Roger retired from designing and was unavailable to correspond with, hence was unavailable as a source of info.

    Thanks to Sabahcat and Aussiebushman for links to their sites/pics of the Ground Effect and Sinewave respectively.

    I'm interested in any info or pics of the following Roger Simpson designs, or any comment from anyone who has sailed on one. Woodwind 9.1 and 6.5, Takeaway and Breton 7.3, Minimalist 7.7.

    I'm specially interested in the Woodwind 6.5 (first set of study prints I ever bought) - I was told that many plan sets had been sold. Be great to see a photo of one.

    Excellent. Thank you. At the time I bought study prints of this design I was told only one had been built. I guess this is it. Its got a lot of room for a 23' open cat IMO . The plans would require re-engineering for standard type crossbeams.

    cheers
