New EC Design Rolled Out

Just finished up a new design for watertribe friend Jim (AKA Sundance) Click Here to see his building blog. She is a folding trimaran designed to go up against the Hobie AI and TIs that have started to dominate the "mini-class 5" entries in the watertribe over the last few years. The 4mm stitch and glue construction, enclosed sea-kayak style cockpit and narrow 21" main hull set her apart from her plastic competition.

She will feature, folding crossbeams, kick up rudder and centerboard as well as a skeg for extra trimming options and tracking in large downwind conditions. Look for her on the beach in 2014. Looking forward to Sundance's build pictures.

Back in the Carolinas

We made it home early monday afternoon. Lots of new lessons learned from the show. Lots of ideas on how to improve the kit especially for the boatshow and how to speed up the build process. This time we actually wrote them down!!!
