Trimaran

Been sailing a Sea Pearl 21 Tri for a few years. Very nice beach cruising boat which I still plan to sail. However it has no permanent inside cabin so is a poor choice for longer cruises when bad weather may ensue. So I recently picked up a Corsair 24. Arrived last week. Haven't had a chance to sail it yet. I've had my eye on Farrier boats for about 25 yrs.

How long does it take to launch, rig and sail away?

I haven't done it yet. It is said that once you learn the system it should be doable in 20 minutes. Mast is raised with the trailer winch. I'm thinking the first time I do it, it will probably take me an hour and half.

This isn't a 24 but the procedure is basically the same.

Looks a bit like the ugly duckling on the trailer but a lovely swan in the water.

Have fun!

Nice rig, kerry. Can't beat a hard cabin when the weather turns snotty or chilly! The dodger/cockpit enclosure is a great feature, too.

One of the main reasons I bought this particular boat was that it had the cockpit enclosure. It's only a few years old and in nice shape. That, and the fact it sits on a tandem axle trailer. Most are on single axles.
The only thing I'm somewhat unhappy with at the moment is the 9.8 Tohatsu. It starts and runs well (has electric start and alternator) but it's a bear to move around. 90+ lbs. I may swap to a 5 or 6hp with an alternator. They typically run around 60lbs. The Tohatsu wouldn't be an issue if it was wise to trailer it with the motor on the transom, but it's not. It's hard on the transom and 90+ lbs way back from the end of the trailer is not good balance for the trailer.

Not enough range.
