Wow, obviously a lot of thought and experience gone into that - as well as a lot of work!

How about posting up some details about the build - eg what was it designed for, where did the pontoon hulls come from, what problems did you have during the build (and how did you overcome them) etc? Also a report of how it goes on water would be of interest. The leeboard should allow it point upwind fairly well.

I sense that a lot of good info for other builders could be found in this build, particularly for anyone thinking of setting up a sail rig. I've been contemplating converting my Laker to a trimaran and I reckon Goanywhere will be salivating when he sees this :lol: .

That lug rig has always looked odd to me but people who have them swear by them and I only recently saw a video of a pram dinghy with one that showed it really scooting along.

Congratulations.

Very very nice! Great looking boat. I'm sure you will get long delays on the beach trying to rig and launch :lol:!

Would love to see some pics of her on the water. Any reports on how she sails?
