Update on the PT11 trimaran “Three Little Birds”

Date posted: January 23, 2012

This winter we have added a very unique anchor roller to the Birds. The anchor roller is set “normal” to the sheer near the bow. Being a multi hull anchoring always includes a bridle off of the ama. So the fair lead for the anchor rode is just what you see. It comes more or less perpendicular off of the boat. We also added carbon tracks for the bikini nets, and then a repaint of the whole bow area including some more refinement of the stem.. She is a sweet boat!

New Years resolution– 2012

Date posted:

hello All:
Perhaps this is a resolution I can keep. Once a month I will update the shop log to keep the blog current.. In the shop now we have “Red Herring” A Dave Hubbard designed 55′ canting keel ketch. It was built 3o years ago in molded plywood and cedar. We are restoring the inner skin where needed, the deck where needed, and building some new coamings and two new Carbon and Nomex dodgers.
