Construction started in April 97 and I had got in about 2400 man hours by xmas of 1999. Schedule for the launch was distrupted by divorce. The boat was sold in 2000 to a couple of nice Australian brothers. I have added additional construction material and some photos and info on the launch and the new owners. The design is a fairly conventional 50' catamaran with fractional sloop rig. Fabrication is in welded aluminium alloy. Dry weight is around 12,000 lbs with a design displacement of 17,000 lbs. Working sail area is 995 sqft. Estimated construction costs ready for sea were around Can$95,000.
