Rapid-Construction Multihulls

23' Trailerable Trimaran

A 23' pocket cruising/camping trailerable trimaran.
This little  23' pocket cruising/camping trailerable trimaran is speedy and manuverable.  It is built from the rapid CM construction.  Joe and Robin, the builders of unit #2, report that while it is tight, they overnighted in it many times.  See their boat in the last part of the CM construction manual on video (DVD).  This tri can use off the shelf beach cat rigs to speed up that part of the construcion.
