    The newest rc-trimaran!

    The newest rc-trimaran!



    I just received this single picture from a young man from Australia.

    He has built this boat - a Mini40 trimaran "Nightmare Mk.VIII" -
    all by himself from the plans I sent to him.

    (the boat is not painted in it΄s final colors yet).
    He wants to use the Vodaphone colors.

    I have several building pics of his boat,
    if you are interested.

    For some reasons I can΄t upload the .zip-file with the plans here...
    If you also want them, please contact me at: ernst.zemann@gmx.net

    Beautiful looking Tri!!

    I believe you are unable to attach zip files to this site as they are commonly used to deliver malicious code, trojans, and viruses.
    One of the better gas boat picture sites - http://imageevent.com/justaddwata

    RCU size limit for ZIP files is small. I see that the limit for PDF and JPG files is a relatively generous 5MB...

    Impressive, the foiling is a nice move. I might have to look into a multihull at some point.

    Just received this from Ian Holt:

    ______________________________
    Different Lake yesterday, it never seems to be good there when there
    is some southerly in the wind, but there were a few healthy gusts.
    See new video here
    http://youtu.be/ERGZU1XHWwg


    It did appear to go faster than then during the first outing, and once
    or twice was going just too fast for me to steer. I think in strong
    winds I will need smaller foils as I have too much lift. When
    hydrofoiling at speed it currently rides very high!

    Latest news from Ian Holt!

    We sailed 2 boats on Saturday - Daryn's Firedragon and my latest. #2
    rigs used as the gusts early on were too much for the top rigs. The
    Firedragon is similar to a Nightmare but with a narrower main hull and
    floats with a little bit more rocker.

    Ian

    And here is the video:
