my wife and I own a 1978 custom built (brown design ) trimaran named wanderer II . She's a dream to sail and tough as nails , I've rode every hurricane out onboard since and including Ivan . we ended up 14 ft above sea level on that one . I was a maritime engineer for 20 years and just can't stay off the water . well I guess I've run my keys enough later . Ron
