Hi, I am building an Farrier 22 trimaran and plan to motor out to sea via the Tom Bigbee waterway; i live in Iowa. Or up the Illinois river if they still have the locks open (due to enviromental issues they may close entry into Lake Michigan). I should be finished building next spring for sure.
I grew up in the Carolinas and am a surfer. I have built a few wooden boats but nothing this scale or with these foam and fiberglas materials before. i love it.!! I’ve surfed on both coasts and Hawaii. I looked at the multihulls in Hawaii and really got interested.
I am interested in designing my own trimarans; and even a semi submersible sailing craft. Also i am looking at getting away from the single mast design of most trimarans.
I’m an artist, graphic designer, 3d designer, photographer, videographer and naturalist. I have a math background and sculpture techniques. Been there done that!
