The 36′ BIB stuffed into a container.
A couple of pictures of Tunnel Vision, my 42′ cruising cat in SoCal.
While in Oahu, I got to visit Elua (formerly Trilogy 2) thanks to Woody Brown (son of that Woody Brown).
A friend of his has it as a cruising boat now named Moana.
It was my first composite COI boat. In those days the USCG didn’t care if the builders followed the plans. Probably 1987.
A retired Australian metal worker told them that I was doing it wrong and they should do it the way Lock Crowther did it 15 years earlier.
Prior to this design I attended a great composites conference where Ron Reichard showed his OSTAR catamaran Fury, and how strong it was. I used his principles. I mentioned that.
The builder heard that Flury broke up at sea, and confused the two. He decided he didn’t want to build a boat that would break up. They followed the Australian.
Bob sails his 34′ KHSD powercat on the north shore of Kauai, which the USCG considers the most extreme weather in the US. He does the Napali coast tours. He has to take the boat out of the water at the end of every tour as there is no safe moorage.
34′ x 12′. He has to come out on a narrow ramp. Foam/glass.
A much more recent KHSD COI cat. Originally built in Bellingham, WA and shipped to Hawaii. Big Island also. 36′ x 24′. CM plywood/epoxy.
I got to visit my first COI cat on Big Island of Hawaii.
1987 i think it was. Still carrying passengers every day. Looking good.
I forgot to post about my 63′ daycharter power cat, Kai Oli Oli. I visited them December 3rd. I got to ride along when they practiced their man overboard drills. Oceanjoycruises.com/our-boat/
This partially built 42′ catamaran is for sale in California. The builder died. It also has a lot of tools.
“My brother, Tim Beyer, purchased your plans for a 42 foot Cruising Catamaran approximately 5 years ago. He has built the hulls, bridge deck floor and dagger board cases from plywood composite and fiberglass. It needs an interior fit out and rigging.
I would like to sell the partially completed project with the plans, all power tools, supplies and materials, and a 38 foot trailer that can haul the hulls.
My brother put his heart and soul into this catamaran and unfortunately died before he could complete it. Consequently I’m looking for a buyer who appreciates all the love and skill he invested in this boat!
His boat is currently located in King City which is an hour’s drive from Monterey.”
As you can see, it is almost built. CM developed plywood.

These sealable mattress sized vacuum bags work great. You can put parts as large as a mattress in them, run the vacuum for a couple of minutes and seal it. The vacuum was still intact the next day. Unlike the Ziplock Spacebags.

The next morning we inserted the bow unit. Done.
And a look at the hull frim behind. The aft area will get smaller after the bulkheads are installed so the crew can walk into the hull.
And a side view to show how round the hull section is.
