DRIFTER – 36′ Newick Trimaran (1994)

Thanks for the pics! Drifter looks very nice everywhere you look. I sail a Newick somersault 26 and now with 2 kids in tow I got curious about the other white wings when I saw it on yachtworld a couple of months back but I never heard back. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. That looks like a high aspect main. That and the long waterline behind the main is somewhat reminiscent, in look, to the skerry cruisers Tom Cunliffe mentioned in his talk (day 2 @ 1h:30m). I read somewhere that the Ljungstrom rig can be dangerous when running in...

FLEETWIND II – 16′ Fireball Class Sloop (1965)

Very inspiring story Martin! Good on you and your family - living the dream =) Makes me want to build a wooden fireball for my sons, although they are very young still. It sounds like yours was still competitive with the newer fiberglass boats which is reassuring. Cheers from Toronto

What a cool boat Ron! Do you have any more pictures? Any of the interior? How would you compare the new vs original rigs?
