Thread: 2-metre trimaran build

  1. #51

    Default 2-metre trimaran build - Progress so far

    During the last week I found the time to continue assembly of my new Naga mainhull. The project is proceeding slowly, I hope to test sail the boat next month.

    The mast box and forward bulkhead are laminated to the foredeck assembly.







    The foredeck assembly glued to the mainhull with epoxy







    Plywood strips to support trays and rear deck are glued to the hull and the rudder tube is laminated in place.The foredeck assembly glued to the mainhull with epoxy





    Bulkhead glued into position with epoxy.





    Next I will glue the trays in place build the rear deck assembly with T-nuts for all fittings and finally glue the rear deck assembly in place.


    Cheers

    Nice job showing building steps.

    Do you think the T-Nuts will give you enough stiffness so your platform doesn't twist?

    Hi Dick,
    the T-nuts are to secure the beams and other hardware only, stiffness comes from the deck laminate and the bulkheads which are placed under the stations where the beams are connected. My first mainull had the same system albeit with a 12mm ply deck section where the beams were fixed. The new mainhull sports a fiber glass foredeck which was the original plan but omitted on the first prototype to get the boat finally on the water after extreme long building time. I did the new foredeck after the first test runs which were great fun for me. I will keep the old floats for now and only do a new mainhull and new crossbeams. Other modifications will be at the rudder and the foils.
    I plan to sail the new mainhull next month.

    Cheers
    Roland

    The transom and the trays for rudder servo, winch servo and batteries are glued in place.










    I'm building the rear deck according the drawings now.

    The rear deck assembly with T-nuts for all fittings required is built.







    I'm going to glue the assembly to the main hull over the weekend.

    The rear deck is glued to the hull - deck fittings and RC installed.















    My new main hull is finished, the new beams are drilled. I hope to sail the Naga between the years provided there is sufficient wind and a helper to launch the boat.
    I keep you updated with my progress here.


    Cheers

    Last Sunday I launched the Naga2 for the first time. The boat sails smooth but unfortunately it was a calm day so I could not test the improved foils. I'm waiting for a weekend with enough wind to sail the boat on foils again. Below are two pictures of the boat on shore. A short clip of the first launch will be here in a few days.
