    Extending an Outremer 49?

    There was a french group doing bow modifications to the Outremers about 10 years ago. They built a mold for the project. I believe the mods costs around $10,000.

    I love it Zonker. I think that Outie 40 might be worth some sweat equity if it was convenient. And cheaper.

    Here's the vid of the modifications to a Woods Gypsy 28. They cut the boat in half and added 5' to the middle. But before that they added 4' to the sterns. So it is now 37'. http://www.time-for-a-catamaran-adventure.com/light-wave-woods-32-37-sailing-catamaran/

    A guy did saw his boat in half and added a few feet to the middle. Maybe a Wood's design and possibly done in Canada. Obviously not for the faint of heart. I think it's on utoob. Did the O49 hobbyhorse?

    Going back in this thread a bit, what was wrong with the Wormwood?

    Dammit, and I knew the 60' was the Chinese one. There is a little more than zero resemblance on the 2 55s. The HH has a big sliding door where the GB was more open air. Take that door out and there you are. The longeron is similar but that's an M&M thing. For a company with an alleged no competition contract I would say they are doing just that.

    GB has parted ways with the Chinese yard that built the 66. Now HH has a 55. Look familiar? http://www.tradeonlytoday.com/2015/09/gunboat-international-sues-chinese-boatyard/

    All the winches were originally mounted on the center console/helm. I think they are still there. The hatches were likely removed by wave action.

    Alpha is still producing. A guy on CF is next in line. I think he is #4. He says they have orders for 6 more or something like that.
  10. I don't see the comparison. Rimas couldn't sail, and the boat needed work and it was a poor choice for the "adventure" but at least the boat could theoretically sail. The FH on the other hand................
  11. I would think so. The existing vid is edited so we know there are some missing pieces there.
  12. Frayed, that's why we were hoping Jarcher's FOI request turns up something better that that vid. We want to see the carnage.
  13. Yup, the rescue was January 31. https://www.dvidshub.net/video/389708/coast-guard-rescues-5-people-sinking-sail-boat-off-coast-monterey#.VRRO1_nF-ct
  14. They called the boat the Flying Hawaiin. Maybe that's the problem.
  15. Frayed, go to page 115. The CG vids are there but they are disappointing.
