Small Camp-Cruising Sailing Trimaran Project

Sailor Eric Dahlkamp is working on a new boatbuilding project. This means he may soon have another boat to try out in a future Texas 200 sailing event.

Included are a couple concept renderings to help us see his vision for this small craft. Pretty neat.

Once again, we are indebted to him for sharing this project with us!
