    Super Tri

    If I were you, I wouldn't rule anything out until the day you start your final design. In the mean time continuing to learn is the best thing you can do!
    Good Luck....

    Definitely! I won't be doing much on it in the next few years, and I've got that crazy fast F20 cat to play on, so there isn't much urge for me to do a super trimaran. I can't wait to see what comes out of the boat works around the world in this market though.

    Hi, rcnesneg. I looking to build something exactly in that configuration. Should be super light, possible to sail alone, self-tacking jib, keep up with F18.
    I built a really small 10feet trimaran this year. It became really sweet. But tooo slow.

    The more a read in to the area of small trimarans.. the more a mental picture started to be clear, I thought the R S Sizzor, was a really good setup, but with too short amas. This UL20, was close to exactly what I wanted, but I want to construct it myself.
    I bought a A-Cat, to crop, and use the hulls and mast..., But the A-Cat I bought is in too good shape, and I don't dare to take it apart :)

    Thanks Doug Lord! I think foils, C-foils or similar is little too advance for me to build (now). Have been watching the foiling-week-videos presentation, but I'm not that good builder yet.
    However, a new longer, center hull should be great improvement. (any one have a broken hull to sell? :) Also today I will get my custom-order of a mini-Code0 and a custom mini-gennaker from North Sails.

    Thanks, Corley. Some stuff I wouldn't have expected there. Almost sounds like the boat couldn't have been tested very much-but hard to tell for sure.
