Does anyone know how she compares to a GBE in various weather? Strengths, weaknesses etc?

 

It's no secret I was in the market for a tri before buying the cat, and as she's going to need work anyway, there's a chance of increasing the cabin size a bit to make her more family friendly. There's also a trailer listed on TM which may be suitable, which would give me the package I wanted initially, ie. a trailable fast tri, with some basic accommodation.

 

Just asking, before I waste time and money heading out for a look if she's not even close to suitable.

not sure you could ever successfully make it family friendly 

 

without so much work you may as well make a niki cruz

 

or simply wait for a trailertri

There's a 8m design by Ray Kendrick, the Scarab 8 which looks awesome, but I have a sneaky feeling that family won't let me build a new boat. I've also designed my own, which ticks all the boxes, and should perform ok, but the same rule applies!

Erm, what do you do with the main when that's up? 

 

How much harder it would be to hang the tent under the boom instead of over the top?

 

PS. it'll be 4 kids by summer cruise time!
