I interviewed Frank Jackson, from Rocky Mountain Safari this week. Frank lives in Colorado where he uses small trimarans to help others get out on the water for camp-cruising adventures.

We’ve already featured Frank’s boats here. But I wanted to actually have a conversation with him about the DIY approach he used in order to create these fun tris.

Here are the boats we talked about …




Among the topics discussed are:

  • What Rocky Mountain Safari is all about … and Frank’s extensive sailing experience
  • How these DIY trimarans came about … and why they’re great for camp-cruising excursions
  • How he approached design issues … including rigging and amas
  • A couple of unique camping / sailing venues out West … including Lake Powell

My interview with Frank is below.
