Sanya,

I can't seem to find them. I have SW 2006 & SW 2010. Where do I find them?

Thanks,
bax

Great! Miles did a good job for me, at reasonable rates and in a reasonable time, and he can design to approved engineering standards like ABS and Lloyds. I can design a hull and other boat parts that are strong enough, and not too strong for are intended use, but I don't know enough to satisfy an official standard.

Regards, Tim at BigCat Catamarans

OMG, that is one beautiful boat and only .5 million Euros, wonder if they are open to offers
I know I have always said small is beautiful, but if I had the cash, I would buy it, main problem is my mooring on the river, not sure if there is enough swinging room

At least now I know how to finish the refit of Babiba

Second the above comment!
What kind of masts are you planning to install, carbon curved ones like the original Radical Bay 8000 I have had the pleasure of sailing on for approx. 1,000 miles or normal straight ones?

Masts will be straight slanted back 4 degrees. The curved ones are best suited to sails with a luff pocket and not slides or cars. Masts are wings, rotating of course, and will fold down from just above the mains stack hieght. There is a drawing of them in the pix at my link. Lines will be internal to the mast and exit under the bridge deck, so no strings on deck.

Lovely lines alright Whimsical. Not just pretty, they work effectively too.

Thanks for sharing your build experience with us. I'm in awe of your workmanship and dedication in getting such wonderful shape from what starts out as 8' X 4' flat panels.

We're starting to see more bi-rigs on the water. They seem to have many advantages. The temptation to put "bi" in the boat's name may not be one.

Cheers, Tuskie

Speaking of 54s.
Here's the 54 footer of John Hitch.

It is very impressive in the flesh.

I didn't notice if this information was posted, but Bagalut (the aluminum cat) is a Kurt Hughes 36 built with his "cylinder mold" method. Basically built as if it were plywood, but in aluminum. Walter enjoyed building this boat, and says that building in aluminum is at least twice as fast building in composite, but you've got to have the skills. The boat points very well and is quite fast, eventhough it's quite a bit heavier than design specs. The boat is insulated and very quiet in a blow.
Cheers.
Paul.

Wo - because it's big it can be simple (as far as lines and shapes are concerned), looks great from the outside BUT good grief what a ghastly interior. Yech. How come the inside suddenly became a design vacuum?

Landon2 I agree about the interior - the faux French-Provincial look must appeal to somebody, but in an otherwise modern boat, it is ...... well, discordant, if not downright tacky. At least they kept things clean and modern in the galley.

And why hide the stairs? You might need them in a hurry, if someone falls overboard.
