Hi Anjou,
Yes, I could've gone with a monohull, but then I wouldn't have a Searunner!

Our head is the incredibly simple/reliable Levac. Other than replacing two "valve rebuild kits" on the diaphragm hand pump, it's been no hassle for the 13 years it has been on the boat.

We carry 4 anchors. The primary on the bow is a 35# Delta, and the others are all Fortresses. The small one is for "Bahamian mooring" along with the primary. We have a large one to use as backup, or double up in predicted gales... AND we carry a HUGE "hurricane anchor", broken down in it's bag and stored low in the hull. (Done "the H drill" over a dozen times now, and still don't like it!)

The center cockpit has your body on the "center of gyration". It is really cool, kinda like wearing the boat, rather than riding on it's back!

Regards,
Mark

If boats on trucks allows inclusion, this is my Dhow on the way to being launched last year in southern Yemen.
So, you want proof that Aluminium floats Draws 400mm with rudders up and of course is shaft drive. Being fitted out as we speak, hope to go get it in December. We have boats like chalk and cheese but in my mind both FABULOUS
