I've got 5 boats and I'm looking for some input and advice for a #5.
First off, heres what the fleet looks like, ACat, 18HT and CL14, 18HT Hulls with a N20 mast, and one partially finished DC.
The Acat sits in my yard on a trailor, The HT (new kevlar main, new spin) sits on the beach at a friends house, mast up, the CL14 sits on the beach near where my parents have a beach house in Cape Cod, mast up.
The DC (Developement canoe) http://www.intcanoe.us/
This is a work in progress for this winter.
So that brings me to boat #5. This is the one I dont know what to do with...
I've got 2 nearly new HT hulls, Carbon 8'6" beams and a repaired N20 carbon mast, no other parts. My thoughts are adding some big crusing racks and make this sucker a family cruiser, or a big wind reacher. For that I need sails, daggers, rudders, boom, running rigging, etc.
Its going to be pretty similiar to the HT that I have, so adding another HT to the family seems a bit redundant.
How about make this a kite boat? I would only need a tramp and rudders.
Or a tri?
Somebody want to take this project off my hands?
