Shadow is waiting to be loaded, the beams felt like they were glued in
It would be perfect for a Long Beach to Galapagos record attempt!Bit of a thread drift but I just saw this ad and thought of you Multihuler.
Now this is a racer/cruiser (in need of some work apparently):

That sounds painfulIt would be perfect for a Long Beach to Galapagos record attempt!
Maybe great for a Long Beach-Galapagos-Acapulco-Baltimore singlehanded record...It would be perfect for a Long Beach to Galapagos record attempt!
Hi Wess,What's you doing down there? Assuming you are the dude that had the R33 on Marley Creek. Hope all is well if I have the right person (and even if I don't!).
Oh man so glad to hear from you. Let’s connect off this nutty place. So you still have my contact? Ain’t racing these days; just cruising w the wife and loving life. Drop me a PM.Hi Wess,
Just got back online after arriving in Washington and driving my delivery crew back up north. Since COVID my government customer moved to Michigan, and I am providing my support from home and now by boat. Too cold in Maryland so I am migrating south for the winter. It is time again to haul my cruising monohull so I came down south and found a good yard in Multihuler's back yard. The amazing thing is the price is about half as much as doing it at The Point. I can stay aboard and hopefully not have to deal with a boat invasion like I had last time at The Point.
I put Wild*Card back together with a new pultruded grating hard deck, relocated the engine forward of the aft beam and also am able to connect Wild*Card to the stern of the monohull to form an ATTB (Articulated Trimaran Tug Barge). When pulled tightly together with an oversized fender between the monohull transom and the forward cross beam, they are still allowed to pivot about a hinge point so that each vessel can independently pitch. The monohull with the inboard diesel has plenty of power and a 14' padded spinnaker pole tied to the aft mooring cleats provides the pivot point. It also raises the transoms about 6 inches out of the water and reduces monohull squat at hull speed. The whole rig is about 60 feet in length. I have done the tow up to the Sassafras and several times to Annapolis in that configuration by myself. The trip this year is to explore the feasibility of doing a tow down south next year.
Let me know if you are interested in doing any races on Wild*Card and I will send you the schedule. I can always use a good helmsman on such a tippy boat.
