Re: Have you sailed a Trimaran ?
I am looking for some experiences from Trimaran sailors - especially sailors of the:
Corsair 750, Corsair F-24, and Corsair 24 and the
Dragonfly 800 and Dragonfly 25
Is anyone familiar with any of these boats? If so, how do they do in the ocean (i.e. off the coast of southern California)? Are they stable enough for single-handed sailing?
Comments on other similar trimarans are also welcome.
I have sailed on Corsairs. My experience has been that a Dragonfly is harder to find than a unicorn, something lots of brokers will agree with.
Your best bet is to hitch a ride on one or more of these boats. This should not be hard to do if you are located in Southern California. There are many of them sailing over that area. It is not uncommon for the owners to single hand them.
The question you may really want answered is could you sail a tri off the coast of Southern California single handed. Going out on one would help you answer this question.
To address your second post Fboats are not cheap and a Dragonfly is probably even more expensive if you can find one. This is a function of supply and demand in the market.
