Thread: 2-metre trimaran build

    Hi Dick,
    it will be a foam plug glassed over - I will take the shells off this plug then. Its different from my last prototypes which were glassed over foam cores.

    I could take some of your snow - we have over 30 deg here and 20 kmh winds - I will try to go sailing on the weekend if winds continue to blow.

    Cheers

    I'm working on the plugs for a modified version of Siri's 2m class tri.
    Here is the progress so far

    I try to get the boat into the water before spring.

    Cheers

    Many springs late, I finally managed to assemble the raw platform. Building the boat is a real space issue, had to send my wife on holiday before I could start the assembly.
    You can see two MultiOne boats hanging from the wall in the background.





    More to come soon....

    Cheers

    Nice. Are cross arms metal, or fiberglass. Foam filled or hollow? Thanks

    Hi Dick,
    the beams are foam filled fiber glass for the first tests. I will build a set of beams in carbon fiber after the first sailing sessions to save some weight.
    Currently I'm working on the sail templates - they are huge.

    Cheers

    Thanks for response. I am thinking of trying a hollow version of cross arms. Most of mine have been solid. Thought about a vertical thin ply shape, then add strips on top and bottom to form an "I" Beam of sorts. Finally fill front and back with foam, shape and glass. Will probably become a bit heavy with all the foam, but was a thought. I may give a try on the Mini40/F48 currently being built.

    Cheers, Dick

    My 2m platform touched water for the first time yesterday to perform a float test. I added 5 kgs of ballast before taking the pictures.

    The custom winch for the 2m project is up and running.



    Now the day to sail the beast is getting close.

    Cheers

    Sails are ready -






    In the second picture you can see a full MultiONE rig on top of the 2m rig to see size difference.
    Next step is sheet installation, after that it is time to put the beast on the water.

    Cheers

    What a beautiful looking boat! I have never played with a multi hull in r/c but it looks like a lot of fun. I would need something a lot smaller tho ... something like what is hanging on the back wall.

    Cheers
