These pages describe building, sailing and refitting my trimaran sailboat made from a 17 foot Grumman Aluminum canoe. It was a great boat! Car top-able, very fast, able to be carried to the water and rigged by one person, and fun to sail.


A sad note, in early 2010, the canoe trimaran suffered a catastrophic failure of the steel tube that holds up the mast in very high winds on Liberty Bay in Poulsbo. Rather than repair it, I decided to build a whole new boat.
