No chance against steel mono. Titabium is not elastic enough to withstand shock loads of impact

Re: At The Risk of Starting WWlll

It's simple: the big cats are beyond my price range and pretty much -- and this is admittedly completely subjective -- all butt-ugly.

Had a friend that had one of them four legged felines, fell in the water and sank like a stone......just like a monohull. Think maybe it was defective?

"Training wheels" for stability are called amas - like on a tri or an outrigger canoe. But a cat doesn't have "training wheels", it has two hulls.
