I think I’m in love

After sailing on the Corsair F-27 I researched it.  I found out it was designed by New Zealander Ian Farrier who pioneered the modern trailerable trimaran.

The F-27 I rode on was manufactured by Corsair, but Mr. Farrier and Farrier Marine (NZ) Ltd is designing a whole new cruising , trailerable triamaran, the F-22

He is doing the entire design on a pay as he goes basis, doing other manufacturing jobs to keep costs (and interest low) so as to keep the sale price low. (relatively speaking)

This is an optimized design based on his experiences designing and building trimarans over the last 30 years.  It’s pretty cool to see his progress over the last 3 years.  He’s posting status as he goes, click here to see his progress.  It’s amazing how clean the factory is.

To quote Mike Myers (Wayne)  in Waynes World, “She will be mine, oh yes, She WILL be mine ….”

By the way, that is a classic movie.  If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing something.  If you don’t appreciate it, there is no hope for you.
