Screamer:  40' of fun ... is back!

 

30 June 1996

We're investigating the production of the Screamer in kit form.  Buy the molded hull, deck, keel & rudder assemble it yourself (its easy) then select the rig that best suits your needs.  The rigs range from the original issue 7/8ths, 40' I to a Towering  55' 3/4 all carbon rig... maximum horsepower.

Check out the pics of the original boat and the drawings of the new rig options, then e-mail us if your interested.  We're anticipating a very attractive kit price.


 

Screamer History

The Screamer (named for a certain child's cry)  was dreamed up in 1981 and put into production in 1983.  Over the next few years 12 of these speedsters were built.  They were raced here & there, rating a solid -some in PHRF, and daysailed alot.  

Being 1983, bulb keels were not the thing to have and as such the original bulb was a "camoflauged" bulb, hardly resembling what is now considered typical.   The orginal bulb has since been rededisgned to a more modern, lower drag, shape.  

The keel itself is attached to the hull using a tongue & scabbard arrangement.  This allows the hull to be lifted off of the keel by removing a couple of nuts.  We used this sort of arrangement on our Open Class 60 "Imagine".  It provides an easily removed keel as well as an extremely strong attachment method.


 

The original rig is a product of the era as well.  ULDB boats in those times were supposed to have reletively low aspect rigs and only moderate amounts of sail.  The times have changed.  Drawing on our experience with "Imagine", we have re-designed the rig by increasing sail area to a point where the boat will have much better light wind performance.
