Amazing the first boat still floats.

Jedi, I have to ask, in the photo of the catamaran, how many of those masts actually belong to that boat?

Three masts. What would you call that rig?

The skipper, Pappa Neutrino, is looking for crew to sail her from Panama to New York: http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...ork-24629.html

It looks to me like there's another boat in the background whose hull is obscured.

No, you're seeing a single vessel, Randy. And, in fact, she has four masts - the foreground main (on the starboard hull) is blocking the mizzen mast on the port hull from view. Here's a link to some pictures from the Floating Neutrinos - transforming lives, one triadic choice at a time. Raft Building, the new wave for the new Millennium website:

Photo Gallery Page Nine

The pics deal with stepping the first of the four masts in Mesquital, Mexico.

Tao,

I think Scotte was right--it's a yawl and a half. I can't count but three of 'em.

"Interesting" craft, no matter how many masts it has...

I think they're building in stages, Hud, and your pic certainly shows they didn't yet have all four masts stepped when the image was taken. This is the caption for one of the photos from that link I put up:

"We use our time in Mezquital to step the first of our four masts. Ed designs a tabernacle and the mast is layed out on the port wingdeck in preparation for stepping."

Being a person who always looks for the silver lining- (HA!!--my wife says), aren't those pretty lines on the motor vessels in the background.

Tao,

Ahhh... Four certainly makes more sense than three. I wonder who the naval architect was...

Ya, you're right. They're certainly on adifferent sort of cruise. Relics from the 60's / 70's. Wish them well

That sweptback rigged "friendship sloop" as someone called it.... where is it located? It looks a lot like the boat a guy was on I met in the Bahamas in about 2000... nice guy, boat paid for, low expenses.... if it's the same boat, it was a lot cleaner then.... Something to be said for a boat you can just abandon when you get to the end of the downwind leg!..... :>) I have threatened more than once to buy the cheapest westsail 32 I could find and sail 'er to OZ then just let her go and fly back! I've lost more money on 47 footers than one would cost!
