I just got some pictures of this sweet little KHSD 23′ day trimaran. Nice job. From New Zealand.
I did get a chance to do an update to the Cylinder Mold Construction Manual. Its about 99% there, needing just a few more links and a few more graphics. I’m going to figure out how to make it available in both hard copy and PDF. Maybe put it on Amazon.
I took a picture of one of my charter cats in Cabo. Frank Rowden has been running this 46′ day cat for some 15 years. Thats a crowded harbor when the liners come in. http://www.cabosports.com/sailing/index.shtml
Just back and catching up on everything. I’m making my way through 248 emails, after I weeded out the spam.
I’m working on this little 17′ roto molded beach trimaran. It is intended for resorts.
I had not yet seen the updated website for the 65′ , 100 passenger Alii Nui. This KHSD charter cat was built in foam/glass by Schooner Creek.
One of the perks of the job is getting a visit from sailors of KHSD boats who rave about the boat. Brian Bell and crew stopped by today. Based in New Zealand, their cruising ground is the South Pacific. Somebody has to do it. Beautiful boat.
I will be out of the office Feb. 19 through 26. I might not even have email.
The 50m oceanography catamaran design keeps going on. It has become a black hole for time. I think I can pull off of it for a while now. It does look pretty cool.
Congratulations. The guys and a girl, Team Hallin, the trimaran rowing team using KHSD hull lines just arrived in Barbados to set a new world record across the Atlantic. See the arrival webcam at http://www.portstcharles.com/webcam_window.php?cam=3.
And http://www.teamhallin.co.uk/wp/ for the announcement.
For everybody who expected design work last week and didn’t see it. Here is why. I had my head down rushing to get this 50 meter sailing oceanography research vessel modeled. Client is Windhorse Lightships L3C.
I had forgotten there was a brave daycharter company operating right up in Blaine, Washington. They use one of my 36′ charter boats in a box. Bring your warm coat. See http://rapscallionsailcharters.com/index.html
Team Hallin, with KHSD hull design, is half way across the Atlantic. It is still leading the rowing race and is still on track for a new record. See the chart at http://www.oceanrowing.com/SaraG_2011_comparative.htm and articles on the race at http://www.teamhallin.co.uk/wp/
The KHSD designed 65′ catamaran for Lake Victoria is looking better than I have seen it look yet. I’m still worried about the weight. See also http://www.earthwiseventures.com/The_Ferry_Project.html
