Plans were airmailed to me in Montreal. Should receive them in 10 days. I wonder how much customs will cost me. Ray told me I was the only one so far in Canada who ordered plans for the scarab22. This boat ought to be more popular. I will try to do a little promotion because it would be very nice to have a local fleet for racing and cruising. I added a link to Precourt Systems on this site. I will use his products in my rigging. I also added Phil's Foils & composite. Phil is a fellow Fireballer and I will order the foils from him.

I started to create a FEM of a simple trimaran structure to understand the major "load paths". When it is complete I will run a series of load cases. The following step will be to model a real boat.
