Seems like I've seen or heard of this before. Anyone know the story? Its at the transient anchorage in Anacortes, sans mast. Anchorage liveaboard said someone was on it yesterday and except for the odd net suspension it looks pretty tidy. I wonder what it is.

That there is an L7. Probably the one by the dentist whose name escapes me at the moment. I was there the day he brought it to Mike's shop when he finished it. If so it's a work of art, incredibly well-built.

Thanks. I got a twofer on this trip then: I met a guy and his boat earlier in my cruise who said his was an L23. Maybe its the same design, only difference was use of mercan units. I'd have liked a sail on either one.

yes the wind blows you around docking especially, in 6 months I dinged up my astus pretty good..
*surfer tip use ding all sun cure for the little nicks
Just looked up the Ding All product you recommended. Seems like a great tip. They sell what appears to be a variety of great little epoxy / Polyester repair "kits", some UV cure, relatively cheaply ~$20 or so. I have been very unhappy with the last few quick repair products I tried, which were for all practical purposes white automotive Bondo with fancy labels. Marine-Tex was good, not perfect, but became annoyingly expensive and due to 5:1 ratio, was difficult to mix without doing the entire container. Making your own epoxy or polyester repair meant buying excessively large quantities of filler, glass, plus sand paper, smoothing film, etc. They put all the stuff conveniently in the box. Sometimes all you need is a small quantity and 2 oz is a pretty decent amount of stuff. I like it!

The UV cure repair is tits. I buy SOLAREZ epoxy because that's what I always have bought, it's clearish resin with a bunch of kittty hairs in it. They have several varieties.

yes the kitty hairs(fiber fill) is the best. You can add white powder to color although these gels are pretty thick to mix but still can, I either do it at night and use a UV light to cure or day time a thick towel over my head(prolly looks like Im trying to light a joint in the wind) to keep the light out.

I wouldn't sail it, but the ironic thing is that it's likely still faster than most monohulls....

I don't think I could fit on/in it.

Just another way I could embarrass the wife.
I know this is not a serious contender lol but not a complete joke either.. Say you live on a golf course with decent size ponds, its Chinese made and found it on one of the market place apps here.. its a good study piece to determine how small is too small or for kids I guess but anyway hard to find trimarans here and seen this and thought you guys would get a kick out of it..
