Sailing in Puget Sound.
My 46′ Performance Trimaran, now Pipeline 3.
These pictures came up in my memories. Most were on my previous phone, when the cloud only saved the camera library and none of the others. Some might have been posted here before, but you would have to go back a lot to find them. Good memories.
My 30′ cruising catamaran.
This great picture of my 30′ cruising cat just came up in my feed. James and Emily sailed it extensively. CM developed plywood construction.
Located in SoCal. It gets used a lot there. CM developed plywood hull construction. A beautiful boat.
My 65′ power daycharter catamaran was recently photographed. They do amazing tours. You can snorkel among the fish and turtles.
I think it was in 1987 that is did this design for Trilogy out of Lahaina.
First it was named Trilogy 2, then Elua, now is Moana.
I actually will be inspecting it next week.
My 35′ power trimaran, built by legendary boat builder Andre Cocquyt. Foam/glass. Andre notes:
our trials got cut short due to hurricane Lee, the marina evacuated and it’s too late to put back in before the season ends per Oct. 1st. I saw 23.4 mph on the second test run. she likes to cruise happily and quietly around 3,400 rpm doing 14 mph. With engines in idle fwd, she does 6.5 mph. It will be interesting to see how she does next year with the trim mods and the swim platform.
Did the Port Townsend Wooden Boat festival. Mostly silverbacks attending.
I ran into legendary boat builder Sam Devlin. He was leading a designer forum in the afternoon.
When I showed up he told me to join him at the table.
I got to tell my story about how in the late 80s Seattle was a hotbed of marine design technology.
My friend, brilliant designer and builder, built one of my power trimarans.
It looks wonderful. Especially when I stand back and look at it.
A pair of 50 HP, 4 cycle outboards pushes it at 24 knots. Sea trials were cancelled due to hurricane.
