Multihull Expert John Marples Publishes New Informational CD About Multihulls

John Marples, a multihull designer with over 40 years of experience in designing multihulls, has just released a new CD featuring fundamental information for all individuals who want to know more about multi-hulled vessels.


Sonoma, CA, October, 28, 2011 –  Multihull designer John Marples gave a well-received presentation to the National Association of Marine Surveyors (NAMS) on the basics of catamarans, trimarans and proas in 2010.  After realizing that even many of these professionals in the marine industry didn’t know certain fundamental truths about multihulls, he decided to expand the range of topics and amount of content from that presentation and delve even deeper into subject areas for recording on a CD entitled, “Knowing Your Multihull, with John Marples.”  

Multihulls really are a different kind of animal,” Marples said.  “The truth is, most boaters don’t really understand multi-hulled vessels.”  

In order to help those who are either new to multihulls, or individuals that simply want to know more about them, John collaborated with a publisher in order to create a CD that contains just over 4 1/2 hours of custom-made and edited audio/video material.  The CD contains 6 multihull audio/video slideshow presentations, along with corresponding MP3 audios.

The slideshows feature multihull photos and sketches, along with my commentary about what is being seen at any given moment within each video,” said Marples.  “After viewing and/or listening to this media, a user will understand basic aspects of multihull designs, along with how their most important factors are critical to both the maintainance and safety of these boats.”  

In addition to the instructional videos, the CD also includes a bonus feature – a video from the 1972 Transpac race.  “On a lark that year, a few friends and myself decided to enter BACCANAL, a self-built Searunner trimaran I was sailing at the time, into that race from California to Hawaii,” Marples said.  “The publisher took footage off an old VHS tape that I had recorded and digitally re-formatted just so it could be included on this new instructional CD.”
