tripp 38

I sailed on a tripp 38 for many years. As far as I know only two were build. Cheers (Green Hull) and Fitikoko (Blue Hull). I sail on Fitikoko. The boats are fast, responsive and powerful. With a well trained team the boat will take you to many winnners circles. The boats will have to be maintained as they are getting older. the decks tend to soften up but with some minor glass work you can fix the soft spots. I truely loved racing on the boat. Hope this helps

Cluttrell is right. Two boats built. First boat was by Mark Lindsay and was launched as "As Larks Harmoniously" later Fitikoko. Second boat was "Amadeus", built by Holby Marine later Promises, now Voodoo 2. Are you looking at Fitikoko? Leroi
