Any one can confirm that this is a Narai?

It seems smaller than a Narai, perhaps it is a modified Tangaroa MK 1.

Looks fast with the narrower length to beam ratio. . .

Possibly Andrés   She was started in 1984 then sold as a incomplete project in 1988 and then some one else took over in 2012 and finally got her in the water in august of 2014. I picked her up in March and finally got the mast up last week! So plans and history have been lost over the years and ownership changes. She has a 19foot beam and the hulls are 35' long. So I am back and forth about Narai or Tangaroa.

In the picture seems narrower. The Tangaroa MK 4  has a 19' beam and 35'6'' lenght overall, and  the MK 1 has 34' lenght overall (JWD Design Book), so it seems to be a Tangaroa MK 4, not a MK 1.

I have a mast off of a C and C 30 but need a mainsail with a foot around 12' if any one knows of one. I willpost some more pics. if anyone can help with identifying. I also need to find and install the Side Stay mounts on the hulls. if anyone has some ideas or insight in regards to this i would really appreciate it. Right know i have 3/8 stainless rigging lines that are to short. I am using multiple loops of 1/4 in nylon braid to make up the difference and allow for a little stretch. I am doing things on the cheap so sourcing used hardware and re-purposing other parts. So ideas and any info helps.

I like the look of those hatches! Do the "washboards" slide on rails?

What is the large arch at the sterns used for?

I know itlooks funny back there. It was put on by the last guy who had it to mount his radar and lights. I am at odds as to whether or not to keep this. It is handy for speakers and a place to mount solar panels but I am concerned about weight and stress on the hulls because it doesnt flex much and is mounted with bolts to the back of each hull. It acts like a mizzen sail abit too. It looks cool but I have mixed emotions about what to do.

none of the hatches are on rails. The front hatches are hinged and only open 90 degrees. the rest have deep lips and fit snug. Too snug when its hot out. got give the a good tug to open them. The main cabin hatches could use some slides or stops at a minimum. they do slide up and rest on the top nicely put could potentially slide right off if your not careful. So i am going to glass a ply "L" plate on the inside bottom half of the hatch lid to catch on the top.
