Why do Leopard owners not use this site

I was wondering why do leopard owners not post on this useful site. Is it because we are hard to FIND? Would like to hear from you. Mayby we can get a Leopard heading just like Lagoon owners have.

Re: Why do Leopard owners not use this site

All Leopard Catamarans are made by Robertson and Caine, but not all Robertson and Caine manufactured Catamarans are branded as Leopards. Thus, naming the group Leopard would leave out the other Robertson and Caine brands.

NO, NO David, you are a First Class Citizen

Leopard Power Cats are AWESOME.

We have charted them a few times and have had so much FUN.

There's a very active and helpful yahoo group dedicated to Leopard cats.

Re: Why do Leopard owners not use this site

Thank you for alerting me to the presence of the R&C forum. I have been on here for years and it is the only one not advertised in the The Fleet under Forums. You have to go into Forums to find it...

Re: Why do Leopard owners not use this site

I'm a Leopard 47 owner lurking in the shadows...

For Leopard-specific issues I use the "Leopardcat" group on Yahoo.

Thank you for letting me know about the leopard and R/C listed thread. But the last posting was in Oct of 2016...

Not many Owners use this site which is a shame. I enjoy this site. and if we had a forum link in MENU that would be great. Since its the second largest cat manufacture world wide. This site has Antaries listed as a link and there numbers are small... Just trying to make a change and get the vitail info out there for Cat Sailors everywhere. Why let them keep going to Yahoo Groups for sharing.. I hope the Web director understands... @nd largest catamaran manufacture in the world...

Re: Why do Leopard owners not use this site

Lazerfx, a very good reason for going to the Yahoo site is the years of Leopard-specific stuff shared by very experienced owners and operators. It's a goldmine covering a brand that doesn't want to know you once the warranty runs out.

I e-mailed them when I damaged the keel on my boat. Never received and answer. By the way will someone post a picture on how to sit my 45 Leopard on the hard? I just posted the same question on the CR forum under multihulls. Not able to find the R&C specific forum. Have a nice day.

Did you join the group? It's a private group and you need to register before you can post. Once you have joined you have access to all the shared documents and message history. To answer your question regarding blocking the hull on the hard, the owner's manual for the L47 is in the shared files section. I believe the L45 and the L47 are nearly identical except the L47 has a couple of feet added to the stern. I would think the blocking information would be similar.
