  1. hello French do it better how are things going? any other photos? alsoi have in my garage a kevlar F18 top square main that will go very very cheap !!! (better on your boat than in my workshop...) i live in Plougoumelen PM me if you are interested some news of 2 SQuare with brand new trampolines ( so much nicer than nets) and soon to be coming the ""bout dehors"" gennaker ad asy
  2. hello Patzefran and every one 2 square is on a boy in the golfe du morbihan and i have been out 4 times for the last 2 weeks. today was best with 16 kn up to 23. my wife and I did a coville planté ; she got a bit scared but all was fine: 2 square put itself up again on its own . still no video or photo but soon I will get an droite phone with sailfreegps apps so I will be able to report on speed and other things. help to improve? and well done french do it better (by the way i am not so sure that 's true, being an ex OZ boy) hope to see you soon around Arradon for a r
  3. Do not be sorry for being french ! you could be pedantic, french and arrogant
  4. thank you tom now i understand it better. I don't think i will use this set up despite it being quite interesting the traveler does not need to be more than1,5 mt altogether . i never had to let the main going further than that the two mainsheet seems a little bit complicated to operate but it might a question of being use to it the load on the boom will be to much( it is only a reinforce all carbon windsurfer mast or though i could add some more carbon anyway you give me to think about it good on you
  5. i do not understand what you mean Tom Here is a foto of the bridle and blocks the traveler are not on but go from the bottom bock to the little red cleat.the problem is the length of the bridle where the bottom block glides It is to long 2 meters and the boom to low. I might go for a rail because i did not save any weight there is 2 more blocks on the big bottom one for the traveler and 4 more to adjust the tension of the bridle to the side of the main hull (previous foto) can you tell me more about what you think()i will answer tomorrow ) block
  6. there is a traveler but no rail. i am using a DM 20 max bridle (like a Laser) and and 2:1 sheave for the traveler but it is not working as well as it's supposed to be: i find it really hard to tension the bridle as i want without putting too much load on the main hull because there is only 45 cm between the bome and the bridle and i have a 8:1 57 harken carbo for the main sheet
  7. no but surely 6 months between designing ,time for "how am i going to to this", finding bits and pieces at the local gumtree or craiglist ( le bon coin for us) and sanding,sanding,sanding... 80 x 4 mmCarbon tube reinforced with 1kg ud carbon top and bottom for the front ones 180 x 74 x 2mm carbon mast of which i cut the gooseneck, add a flange (foam +ud carbon) in the middle , closed it and same as above main hull is 4mm plywood with 300g biaxial glass both sides + ud carbon where it needs floats are Hobby miracle 20 heavily modified( wider, higher minus 13 kg
  8. the TOTAL rigged weight is 300 KG with DM20 max rigging the amas are around 875 lts so about 300% i don't have any video yet and I am currently building the bowspirit so not to soon
  9. Hi Tom you are right i should be using a self tacking jib but I wanted to be sure of the balance of the overall design : There is 2 daggerboards on the amas as well and i wasn't sure of their positioning /Sail plan and yes i think she is flying 1 hull because of the "vvvvvvvvv" i can hear suddenly when she kicks off good luck with your sea rail as soon as you get back your sail you are right
  10. OH no not a pulse 600 please! but same program No gennaker-screecher? not yet but soon to be 32M2 flat spi and 17 m2 gennaker
  11. Hello everybody After 2 years designing and building I had the big pleasure of sailing my very very square small trimaran (unnamed yet !) 5,8 x 5,8ml ; 300kg all up, sail 21 m2 including 8 ml carbon wing mast she is a joy , stable, fast and easy to pilote )
