A couple of years ago my son Ian asked me about building an A Class catamaran. Having built several of these in the past and knowing what was now on the market, I came up with a build method that would:
- Allow us to build a competitive design.
- Be at or under the class minimum weight of 165 lb.
- Be as strong and stiff as anything on the market.
- Be competitive in quality and price, but not get trapped in exotic equipment expense. This meant no vacuum bag, no pre-preg, no resin infusion, and no autoclave.
