I have been commissioned to design a 130′ trimaran freighter. Foam/glass. It will hold small containers. Roll on roll off. It will have lounging area for a dozen day passengers. Caribbean.
A customer, Terry, didn’t get around to building his actual boat yet, but he built a model. I like yellow boats.
I just got pictures of a CM built Tomcat 30 trimaran with updated amas. It looks hot. It was built in the early 90s as I recall.
I just got this picture of the 3rd or 4th design that I ever did. Back in the hand drawing days. Cylinder molded plywood/epoxy. 1986 I think it was. It still looks really good to me. 37 feet.
When I ordered the carbon fiber cross tubes for my yellow 12′ trimaran, I assumed a modulus of about 16 million. And I speced the thickness accordingly.
I just got the spec sheet from the manufacturer.
8.5 x 10 to the 7th.
I checked with a scientist I know. That is 85 million.
That is more than 5 times the modulus. Wow.
They aren’t going anywhere.
Painted with Awlgrip clearcoat.
The Meermark 17, a Kurt Hughes designed 17 footer that provides, easy, safe, fun, fast and affordable sailing to everyone. #sailing #sailingforeveryone #sailability.
I don’t think that I have seen these pictures of my 38′ power tri. The amas are too small.
This 37′ trimaran is one of my earliest. It was completely before CADD.
John launched his heavily modified KHSD 40 trimaran June 20thWhat is it, 46′ now?
I did carbon wing mast and boom designs for it also. Will post in the future.
