    Help me out with some MORC History

    Congratulations, you'll be surprised how well she sails with so little demands upon, and you. I sailed on Trina, at. IHYC, and we won most of the trophies even though we we so. small that we always finished last and then corrected out. Bill Shaw was so under rated as a designer. She is like a baby B40

    Self steering trimaran

    I just remembered Dick Newick, used centerboards to help self steer balance in many of. his early boats, a lot of what he did merits a. closer look. As a design purist it is hard to beat his thoughtful work.

    The Yankee Dolphin[a true sleeper]. The Renegade. was also a Shaw design, it felt a lot bigger, did the job, but the Dolphin always beat us on. ratings.

    Infusing flax

    My guess is the flax thickness and its' greater insulation abilities would cause more heat generation[exotherm]and insulatiom[higher R value]. I applaud your efforts in using flax.

    Groucho, as another analog still photographer, I can relate. Our lives are a point in time, sorry for you loss. Aloha, Guerdon.

    Amgpuma, tow ball is simple/good. The G32 original worked fine. You might consider a dyneema keeper line from the base to the spar, like windsurfers have at the tendon joint[base]. If you plan on capsize recovery you probably won't.

    Drill a crack stop if it is carbon or metal, a counrtsink seems to work on glass. Glad that you are aware of notch strength issues, that's the concept that eludes many.
