Adding a second forestay chainplate on A-cat hull


revintage

Recommended Posts

Cut an opening in the A-cat hull, I am converting to be used as center hull on a small foiling trimaran I am building. My idea is to add a second forestay chainplate on the opposite side of the hull.

I had hoped for the hull sides to be reinforced on both sides,  but they wheren´t. Hull is made from epoxy/grp/foam sandwich. Did a simple sketch on a possible solution. Question is if the foam needs to be removed and replaced by injected epoxy in the area?

Also anyone might have a better and simple solution to this?

Drill holes in the outer layer and removed the hard 3-4mm foam in the area around the chainplate.

This is another possible lightweight solution using a dyneema sling:
