      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Too much work! Buy a used Pulse 600. Spend your time sailing - not building. Happy Sailing.

I think you are being unfair to the builders out there.  Like any craftsman/artist, the joy is in the creation.  It is a different joy than that of mastery over wind and seas.

Nice boat. Well done, and at a fraction of the price of a Pulse I would think.

I think you can build this in one or two year for much less than that.

If one want to build boat - starting with a small project like this makes a lot of sense - that can be done by an amateur in home-facilities.

Building a 30+ft multi is a major job that should be left to pros or semi-pros.

Nice and fun boat that one.

Looking around for simple, economic, homebuilder multihulls - one overlooked designer is Gary Dierking.

He has an especially attractive design, Va'a Motu, that has the option to be built as a double outrigger (trimaran)  -- very nice, great sailing boat (see his videos).

Found at http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/garyd/vaa_motu.html

That's my boat. I started her way before corsair did the pulse. At the time my options were a Tramp or TT. For around 20% the cost of a pulse I think It was worth it. As for time involved, well the difference between an ordeal and an adventure is only your frame of mind!

She a Franken-tri made from a nacra 5.8,a cobra cat with a F18  Main sail and cobra jib. No down wind sails yet. The nacra hull was cut down the centre and widened by 150mm at the transom. The halves where canted out slightly. The shear raised by 100mm The cobra hulls (3mm ply)were wrapped in carbon the boards removed and bows modernised. All up she weighs around 250kg. Two fit people can lift her unrigged. Length ended up 5.75m Beam is around 4.4m. Single rudder and board. Sleeps 1adult and child each side. Top speed 20.5 kts in flat water and 25kts, she does about 10 kts in around 14kts of breeze

Three bags you made an excellent work with this boat. Looks fantastic and most of all it gives you the pleasure of creativity. Respect.
