    Mini40 Trimaran - Nightmare MK VIII - First Production Boat Launched Today

    Today I have successfully launched my first Nightmare MK VIII off my new moulds. The prototype has been launched in April.
    It has been a calm day, nothing spectacular. The boat sails well - strong wind sailing videos will follow - I'm waiting for wind


    My first glass MK VIII without rig - 65M Tri pictured together to see the difference in size of this two classes.


    Nightmare MK VIII first production boat first launch today, October 10th, 2009

    You can find some more pictures and data on my site.

    Enjoy looking

    Looks really good. How much lighter is it than the glass version. Do you find it to be stiffer overall, especially the beams? Did you use an epoxy resin or polyester/vinyl?

    Dear TBK,
    the carbon version is 900grams lighter than the white glass boat - about half of the weight saving is because the carbon boat is not gel coated, stiffness is about the same. All my boats are in epoxy, I do not use vinyl/polyester.
    How is your 65M project - have you started already?

    Cheers

    Dear Sirit

    Thanks for the update. As far as a was aware epoxy resin is not very UV stable and given enough time in the sun, it will tend to turn yellow and become brittle. This can be overcome somewhat with a clear coat. Have you found an expoy that is UV stabilized? Sadly I have not found the time to begin my RG65 project. We are having an unusally mild fall and I am still able to sail (ponds not hard yet). Once things get too cold I'll probably pull out the templates and begin the build.

    RE: Mini40 Trimaran - Nightmare MK VIII - First Production Boat Launched Today

    Dear TBK,
    you're right with UV stability, but it is not a big issue, the boat is not moored outside, its in the sun only while racing it.
    I guess your place the water will get solid soon, it is already cold here in Thailand.
    I hope you will have fun with the RT65 you're going to build. The small ones are more convenient to transport.
    The projects I'm working on now are a 2-metre Tri a Mini40 Cat and two monohulls, a RG65 and a ultrawide IOM.

    Cheers

    Dear K. Sirit,

    I see you are working also with carbon fibers in your models.

    Do you know a carbon distributor called Rattanakosin Composites in Thailand? They have many differnt styles of carbon and kevlar in stock in Thailand. www.rc-composites.com

    Kind regards,

    Tim

    Sirit is seemingly not present in this forum currently.

    Some verbal attacks made him angry as far as I found out.

    Hi Multihull friends,

    here are some pictures of the multihulls I have build after my successful Nightmare MK8:


    Venom R - lightweight Version of the Venom Mini40 Catamaran


    WRT40 MK2 - Mini40 Trimaran


    Nightmare MK8 - Mini40 Trimaran with a new rig


    Nightmare X - Mini40 Trimaran evolved from the MK 8


    Inferno - sleek Mini40 Catamaran


    Water Resist WRT40 Rel. 2 - Mini40 Trimaran


    Most of this boats are available as kits (epoxy-fiber glass hulls, appendages and beams) from my site, I have several designs sitll sitting on my workbench.

    Cheers
