Yes, that's the 4.4m Alpha Omega and despite what is given as it's overall length it is in fact approx 14'7" long and carries 132sq ft of sail.

Hi Berny…I heard a lot of good things about both you and your 430 design…that it is right in the ball park with A&O…don't let anyone kill your dream.

Regards,
Bob


No mate, actually I'm more than happy with the boat. What I meant was, my declaration that I actually designed and built the boat seems to kill any further interest in it, particularly here in Oz regardless of it's good form both on and off the water.

Thanks all the same for your generous support but my dreams of providing a very good, reasonably high tech boat to encourage our younger sailors and bring the 14ft cat into the 21st century died a long time ago sadly.

How much for a set of 430 hulls and how much for a complete boat ready to sail?

I'd have to do the costings over again, it's been about six years since I had current numbers. Suffice to say way more expensive than a Mari, or Hobie cat, like you could own five or six of either of them for the same $$$ a 430 would cost.

In the mono hull ranks cashed up dads buy these sorts of toys for their sons/daughters but cat sailing dads race their own boats and the kids crew for dad = no market <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />.

Would you under any circumstances consider making available a lines drawing/offset table of the A&O F-14?...Some time ago you told me that the design didn't lend itself to timber construction...not a problem...not interested in a wood hulls any way, and as you know there are many ways to make a male plug/mold to "one off" a couple of hulls regardless of how complex the compound curves are.

One of my favorite methods is to hot wire 1 lb density Styrofoam. Easily obtained, easy to work, relatively inexpensive and a quick process if you know what you are doing. Shape of the object (hull) is only limited by ones skill and imagination.

Regards,
Robert
