 An Unconventional Boat

"It was clear that only a multihull could provide the stabilty I wanted for a light-weight trailer boat. And I think I got infected by the multihull virus when I made experiments with my canoe converted into an outrigger boat before buying a "real" sailboat. A catamaran like Wharram's Tiki 21 seemed attractive, but would not offer the comfort I had in mind and wouldn't be a real trailer boat. As for trimarans... well there seems to be an unwritten law that trimarans are uncomfortable racing machines with extremely slim center hulls."
