Will get acquainted with protocol after ten posts I suppose!
Heading down tomorrow to prep, paint and relax(ha-ha) her "wag" ing arse
Tomorrow after work. prep and bondo sat morn, meantime prepandprime rest
by sat night hopefully base and clear done.....
Why Iím here? still want to find a registry of boat names,- possible history on the 26th hull MK1 built ...... "WAG" has got to have more of a history, or her story, I could give a snot, just want to know her's in particular story.
She has been butchered and added to in both secure preservation, but needs much love.
I seem to have and luck finding great divine gifts of human design and furthermore delight in making attempts in their charge of preserving them.

Basically, the photo attaching function is whacked... read the POST in my signature to figure out how to link to them from an external site, like flickr.com. You'll need 10 posts to do that though.
Here's your photo.

I cant figure that out, upload attachment gives an error, and ... holdup...
at least thats what it will look like after it gets sprayed this weekend.

I have attempted to attach some pictures of her in her current state, and one of a boat I want her to look like.
lets see if this works

Oh nice, I'm closing on an Iroquois MkII in a couple of days.
The owners association web site is at Home
The web site is a bit ugly right now though, it's transitioning from a previous administrator I think
There is also an active Yahoo mailing list, IroquoisCats : Iroquois Catamarans

66 iroquois hull 26!
I just made a deal to procure the boat, I'm going down this weekend to refinish the hull and I should have her in the water in two weeks.
Anyone know any history on this boat? She was named "Wag" I suppose in a refrence to tacking?

LOL... I've sailed on Corsairs, Dragonflies and the Telstar... got the Telstar... and like the way you can motor with the amas closed... very useful for getting in and out of the marina.
However, to get back to the topic... trimarans are probably not really good boats for this purpose. They're too wide when rigged for sailing, and don't really have enough cargo capacity or living space to be workable for most people.

I did not have s.. Sorry - I did not say that the Telstar was ugly! Actually I like it. However I like the Dragonfly more!
Here's a snippet from the Dragonfly website regarding the 800:
"Some people would comment that the disadvantage by the Swing Wing system is that the boats get longer in folded position. This is correct, but this also protects the rudder and the outboard, when these are folded up. By this, it represents the same length anyway."
Some of the bigger models have an inboard engine, as requested by Paul ElvstrÝm (I actually think he just told them to remove the ugly outboard IIRC).
And yes, I'm biased! I've sailed on a Dragonfly, but never on a Telstar!
|09-18-2007 10:38 AM|
LOL... not really all that stable, since some of the forward buoyancy and stability is lost by moving the amas aft and in. BTW, are you saying the Telstar is ugly??? Them's is fighting words... Of course, my opinion may be a bit biased, since I own one.
