Re: What kind of tri is this?

I'm no expert but maybe either a Piver or a Crowther ? Perhaps but I'm not certain by any means.

She looks a bit similar to the thing that Crowhurst sailed in the Golden Globe. That boat , Teignmouth Electron, was a Piver.

Re: What kind of tri is this?

It is definitely a bastardized Piver. If it has double chines it is a double A series; if single, an older design. Piver did not design the mess over the cockpit and most likely the boat is overbuilt and too heavy to sail well.
If the tri's he designed were built to specs, they sailed pretty well for their time, but if over built they became dogs. She appears to be about 4" down on her proper waterline, not a good sign.

Re: What kind of tri is this?

No idea but that boat directly ahead of it is one of my designs, the CT 65 aka Scorpio 72.

Dear God, the owner gave up and mounted two outboard engines to the Piver? Imagine trying to match the throttles and control the angles on those engines, set so far apart.

It seems to be a not uncommon set up on old Pivers. I know of one which has a honda 15 hp O/B installed in a well in each ama, about 3/4 of the LWL from the bow. Struck me as not a bad idea, and probably makes marina maneuvering easier.
