Folks,
Many people build Farrier Tris and some even build more than one. This says a lot about the designer and his plans that he has to offer.

Just wondering if there are many people on this forum that have built their own Farrier Tri or do all the home builders generally just stick to the F boat egroup.

So if you don't mind admitting it , it would be interesting to hear from those who have.

Regards,
Phill

unfortunately most of the F boaters stay on the yahoo site, which is sad because the format of this site is superior and there aren't moderators here (for the most part).

I've not seen the Yahoo site, but have you told them about this site? Maybe we can get them to come over and add their thoughts?

they are fairly ingrained in that site... I mentioned it about a year ago.

Teamvmg,
Thank you for letting me know.
I only want to know the F boat builders in case I have questions downstream.
I'm really glad to hear that you are enjoying the process.
That is very encouraging.
The detail in the Farrier plans is really very good.

Regards,
Phill

Buccaneer,
After careful consideration I think an F82R would suit my needs the best. Not too big, not too small , fast and versatile.

I think this build will be a lot of fun.

Regards,
Phill

Hi Phil,
I have built an F82R.Finally finished her last year. It was deffinetly a great experience, and a great learning process. The boat is truly awesome, and im sure that when the time is right i will build another multihull in the future.

Have you considered the wider hull design for the F82R, Ian admits he has a set of drawings available and it does give a much fatter planning type of hull which we are used to with the F16's. It does also give much more comfortable accomadation ?

I know that he has the wider version of the larger designs (F9RX) and F32RX) but i had no idea he had a wider version on the F82? If so this would be a really good option im my opinion especially if it dosent make the folded width overall much wider hindering easy trailering and parking ect. I will have to ask Ian about this option if and when i do sell my current boat and i am crazy enough to built another, as im not sure exactly what boat i will choose to build F22 or another simpler/lighter version of the F82R(I.E. very basic interior and no aft cabin).

Yes the wider version allows other benefits as well as a fatter rear hull ( seems where most big tri's have gone over to ) in particular if you offset the dagger board by about 150mm you can get a fitted loo in the larger space Well on paper it looks like you can, practically ???? ). Ian is openly questioning whether the wider boats are slower as first thought. There was quite a discussion on this on SA a few months back

I've also thought that the Amas may just have not been big enough but with the extra width and leverage it gets back to being about right. Pity they were not slightly more foward of the main hull than they are now, but hey that was the design of the time and it has been a very successful design.

There are loads of benefits of the 82 in my mind, principally its small enough to fit in most marinas corner spaces. At 32 feet you are suddenly a big boat and in a crowded marina the shoreman will just say we have no berths. Also here in Europe its better to have a much cheaper boat build wise and spend the money saved on taking the wife to nice hotels along the way, afew nights on board followed by a nice night in a hotel to spruce up.

Sam,
I, too, am very interested in learning more about the F22 and potentially building one. What attracts you to the smaller boat after building your F28? For me, I just want a daysailer that will put a smile on my face when the wind picks up. Unlikely that I'll ever sail outside of the Turks and Caicos Islands where we live. I would love to learn more about your experiences building the F28 and if you are going forward with the F22. I have read everything on the Farrier site and I am close to ordering plans and study book.
I tried emailing you directly but it was returned.

F28 is a production boat.
F82 is a home build boat [8.2meters long]

right, thanks for the correction TEAMVMG. What stage are you at with your F32? I am leaning more toward the F82 now that I've read the study guide a bit more and more info on the site.
