Just bought a Trifoiler today in Australia and will get in a week or 2.

Cost me $8000 AUD with a trailer. Sight unseen and it only took me 1 minute to make up my mind to buy it.

Any tips or advice will be well recieved.

The Trifoiler was delivered yesterday :D

Anyone know where to look for the hull number to ID it?

Also some stays have been replaced and I think they are too short. The masts have forward rake which dosent look right to me. Anyone know of the best rake setting?

Cheers

Scott

Welome to the world of fast sailing. Mast should rake backwards with stays under tension. there are some safety issues related to the snap shackles for the rear stays. Do not sail if you still have the stock SEA DOG Shackles on the rear stays. Under stress (more than 275 lbs) , they will straighten out and drop your rig at the most inconvenient time. Lots of good alternates. Contact me off page for more details.
