John Cashman has now launched his F-36 in NSW, after a ten year build period, and it is looking great. John had first built a Trailertri, and writes:
ENOUGH ROPE was launched on 31 October 2009. The rigging was finally finished at the end of February 2010. She was built as a cruising boat complete with desalinator, a tower for solar panels, wind generator etc.
She had her first sail a couple of weeks ago. In light wind she performed respectably, especially considering her weight. She is learning to sail cautiously, each time going a little further. Hooning with two hulls out of the water, towing water skiers, is still in the indefinite future.
She was built according to the F-36 plans and includes some of the upgrades you sent out. The final length is 11.94 m.
She sports the Sail No 2, but not yet the F-36 logo. It is cut out and ready to be applied but the sailmaker seems to have forgotten to put it on.
Best wishes and many thanks for you help along the way,
