I was looking through SAIL and saw the add of the Telstar 28 Tri what was trailerable and was pretty wowed by it. I am looking for a trailerable to purchase before Christmas and it seems I have read so much about how a multi hull is considered better than a mono that I might consider the Telstar.
Well, let's start by mentioning that you can't believe everything you read ....
The first question that popped into my mind is would the "trimarans" (not sure if thats the right usage) maybe the pontoons...
the correct term here is 'training wheels'
would they break off easily while underway. Lets say I was going parallel with the waves and both pontoons happen to be on the crest of a wave at the same time and the center hull would be in the trough of the wave. If the wavers were big enough and close together like that could that potentially cause a major problem???????
It certainly has been known to happen yes.
It seems to me like that would be A LOT of weight on the joints. Did the buildbers prepare for this instance and make the boat strong enough or the boat be ale to flex or what?
Well for your sake, let's hope so !
Just something I didnt understand..
Multihulls ??? I must confess I don't understand them either
Also, I am wanting something with a nice spacious cabin and I know that the Telstar is 28' wich would help but with it being a tri, would it suffer in space when I think about the beam of the center hull? I cant seem to find the demintioins for it. Has anyone been inside one of these things?
I believe people have gone inside them - whether they went willingly or not I can't say ....
What do you think? Good boat? Sturdy? Good Liveability?
I'll recuse myself from any further comment as I am a died-in-the-wool monohull sailor. Sailing Dog has no doubt given you a glowing report and answered any questions you have. Good Luck and leave your children ashore !
