Welcome! Our happy band now numbers 12.


Today I was looking at the latest Boston "Want Advertizer" a weekly
publication of nothing but want ads, and saw the following;

        16' Evinrude Sport Cruiser w/ EZ loader trlr, 50hp Evinrude,
        extemely stable tri-hull style, great fishing boat. $1500/bo

Other tri-hull listings (details omitted);

        16.5' Glasstron tri-hull early 80' 75hp Evinrude $1300
        17' Chrysler Cathedral tri-hull w/ 85h $1500
        15' Glasstron tri-hull w/ 80hp IB, shift needs work $1800
        16' Silverline tri-hull 1972. 60hp Johnson OB $1995
        15' tri-hull 1977. 40hp Johnson OB $2500

Which brings up two questions;

Why did tri-hull's (which seemed quite popular in the 70's) from
favor? Even Boston whaler is selling V-hulls!

Would it make sense to broaden the list to include any of the above
makes? I remember the Glasstrons looked alot like Evinrudes, and
Chris-Craft purchased the OMC molds/designs (I even saw one recently
parked near Newfound Lake, NH).
