The Malibu Outrigger
It was around 1949 when Warren Seaman launched the first Malibu Outrigger, the forerunner of beach launched multihulls such as the Hobie Cat. The 18' 10" Malibus were almost all home-built and provided amazing performance with their 192 Sq feet of sail area. Tim Anderson has posted the Malibu sailing manual and many photos at his website. There is also a Yahoo group devoted to the Malibu. Plans can still be ordered from an address at the Yahoo site for US$50.
