The aft part of the hull has been re-designed to fit with the catamaran version.
She gives us a very simple catamaran where 4 berths are possible, always with an extraordinary! headroom of 1.30m, with a lot of storage.
A porta potty can be added, and a little stove too.
She is designed for suny areas, with 18m2 of deck!
She is equiped with a central rigid area made of plywood.
A simple outboard case is bolted at the center line.
Crossbeams are made of aluminium tubes, and the mast could be a second hand one, if taken from an old hobie 18 or equivallent.
2 centerboards are sliding in their trunk, where trunks are integrated in the outside hull shell plating, to gain volume for accomodations.
