Scarab 10 trimaran

This design is for the beginning builder. Some experience with tools is needed.

The Scarab 10 is a new design. The boat can built in plywood or foam. It is 10 foot long with a free standing mast, single sail and sliding tubes connecting the floats to the main hull, dagger board rudder and centreboard. The boat was designed to be sailed by one person or two small people.
We built one of these boats but we deviated from the plans (much to the chagrin of the designer). See the pictures below. The boat was designed to be built using chines but on this boat the bilge panels on the main hull and floats were rounded off. The beams were also changed from aluminium sliding tubes to folding beams with water jet cut aluminium folding struts. Plans are not available for the beams or struts.
The main hull and floats are the same. It took a lot longer to build and more expensive.
