Curious what is your draft?
Rudders down around 800mm, rudders up, around 450mm.

Folks have been mentioning the difference in a rolly anchorage. Good point.

That IS something to think about.

I just can't imagine doing without some of my favorite pastimes while cruising and how those might be affected by my choice of a boat, between a Mono or Multi.

Think it will make any difference? ( )
Ha!!!!! At anchor.... not sure whether it was in the high 40's or the low 50's....sometime in June while waiting for a break in the weather.

Winter amusements...... on a mono...

Cop that you multi peoples....

Clearly you had run aground - perhaps on an ice flow!

Re: A Reasonably Balanced Article.

Sometimes shallow is good, other times skinny is good....

That 'flat water' on the stbd hand in the first pic is kelp.. a bit of a 'no go' area...

That's impressive! Cool! Well done!

To see that on a boat (a mono), is VERY impressive.

She's pretty and obviously enjoying herself on the boat, despite the cool ambient temp.

Now….about the thing she's doing with the cards…that's pretty impressive too.

______________

Seriously, I don't think I have ever built a house of cards that high. Cool!

And this is a great illustration of how stable a mono can be.

Ha!Both stabilizers out, sat on mud on the calmest day in the history of the West.

Meanwhile on the Cat-during a force 7 in Biscay, whilst rescuing 3 people from misery and seasickness on a Mono, 1200 Dominos were stood up and did not move for 5 hours until 8 year old Simon set off the run from the saloon to the front cabin.

Re: A Reasonably Balanced Article.

OK
I might have fibbed about the force 7, being in Biscay, rescuing people and the dominoes standing up for 5 hours. Indeed, and that is not a photo of Simon...

But Simon was with me and we did have a smooth sail, he steered for a lot of the trip whilst drinking a can of coke which never fell over once, to Burger King as his birthday treat in Cardiff from Bristol. We are still in amazement how he managed to tie his coat to the cleat with himself still in it but thats another story.......

Somehow, with the spelling corrected, the Theard is not the same.
