When I saw it in Multihulls Magazine, I had such hope that he could succeed.Here is probably what will become of the MANGLED MERLOE when it runs up dockage fees in Mexico.
This is the 118' LOA RTW trimaran designed and (nearly) <80% finished in Hawaii. I was asked to try and do some renderings for the bare hulls and beams to make more saleable after the builder died. His widow had hoped to recoup some of the 10 years cash (and sweat!) that had gone down the drain. Jim Antrim had contributed to the design and he must have thought I would take on the rendering (and additional modeling) on a Pro Bono case but that never happened. Sad story really but she did get an absurd offer from some Australian booze cruise operators that did eventually motor it down under where it underwent and incredible transformation.

Actually the trip to Brisbane from Hawaii was a record setting foolhardy event! I think the set up a small thatch roof over the steering station and hung a small outboard or two and just toughed it out. I can start on the 3d concept money for Capt Don just as soon as I get a retainer fee from one of his 'foundations'...
