Seaclipper 24 Trimaran Building Project in Maine Almost Finished
Sailor and self-boatbuilder Lenny H. is almost finished with his Seaclipper 24 trimaran building project. As you see in the photos below, his new sailboat turned out beautifully.
Kudos to him on the completion of his new craft!
Lenny hopes to be totally finished and be able to launch in a week or two … just in time to catch the end of this sailing season. He told me that the build process has been fun, but he’d really like to get the boat in the water now.
His last hurdle is trying to modify a J-24 rig to fit the Seaclipper 24. And he said he thought the biggest challenge overall was envisioning how everything fits together and where, for example, a 1/16” measurement is critical and where it doesn’t matter.
As far as I know, this is certainly one of the first SC 24s (if not THE first) that has been built. I know he is going to make John Marples (the boat’s designer) smile.
Thanks for sharing these with us Lenny.
