Original Tomcat 30

I just got some pictures of a version 2 I think it was, Tomcat 30 trimaran from the owner, Robert Wakeman. This was the design that first got me into Multihulls Magazine. The idea was to be the fastest 30′ multi possible that would meet offshore racing rules. Back then none of the multis I saw thought about headstay tension and pointing. This design did. Not much I would change now some 30 years later.  It had big board, big amas way out there.  Rotating fractional rig.  Now I would round the sheers more. Add a squaretop main. A little more fullness in the hull sections.  Lighter hatches. 

A pretty cool boat.  See http://stallionoftheseas.blogspot.com/
