messing about in boats

Buccaneer 24 Trimaran

Posted in Sailing by Joseph Moore on October 15, 2009

This looks like a lot of fun for cruising around in, albeit a bit wet in a chop. I’m a big fan of quick boats because I quite like the arriving as much as the sailing there. Centreboards do make creek exploration and just pitching up on a beach quite accessible too…

Perhaps it wouldn’t be too far fetched to build one. I know what I’m doing with wood and composites, I’ve got my eye on an old Tornado mast in the Grafham boat park, plus there’s a guy reproducing buccaneer 24 plans. Donations of marine ply gratefully accepted!
