Looking for F16 plans #266356

Hi all,
Im planing to build a F16 cat but cant seem to find any plans. I tried to contact phill brander for the blade plans at the address: bladecatamarans@gmail.com but have not gotten an answer. AHPC sells plans for the taipan 4.9 but according to them it is not a great F16 as it cant take a kite due to the low hull buoyancy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kofi

A couple of people that have built Blades are the Barrett brothers at the "Fibreglass Factory" Lonsdale South Australia and Marcus Towell at Victor Harbour South Australia

Sorry digging up old thread.
I have mailed him at 2014-01-01, and still not gotten any response.
I also consider to build a mosquito.
Also I would like to know, how is blade and mosquito if you compare them side by side.?

Is there any possibility do describe it a little more detaljed.?

What I would like to know is the difference in :
performance light wind, hard wind.
And which of them - if any, is best to use if I later want to add foils.

Thankyou

The F16/Blade is a lot bigger boat than the mosquito. they are both the same length but the mossie was designed in a completely different era.

the f16 is a faster boat in all breezes, it has a larger rig and a set of hulls designed to cope.

neither are suitable for foiling, a timber boat would struggle with the loads around the transom and main beams.
