Lets just say one bucket of fresh water does not even begin to wash off the salt.

It took several hours of scrubbing the seats and everything I touched when back in dock to clean off the stickiness of the salt.

Re: Do Multihullers Ever go Back?

A Good Mono is between 20 and 50 Grand, Second hand,

A Good Cat starts at about 100 Grand, Second Hand,

Thats the answer in a nutshell for the Die Hards and Purists,

There is a place for both, With out doubt,

Its what you can afford at the time, and what suits your purpose,

Most people on Mono's are there purely because they cant afford a Cat,

Thats reality, Not a put down, I could have bought 7 good Mono's for what I paid for my one little Catamaran, But none of them would do what I want to do, So a Mono was out of the question,

If your permanently tied to a Marina, 3 Tractor tyres and a sheet of ply and a tent will suffice, 3 Tyres in case one goes flat,
And the most important part, An internet connection to run down and Flame any one that actually gets off their Bum and sails away across the wide blue yonder,

That Crazy Fool has actually untied himself from the Dock, Hit the big red button Folks,

Once a Mono huller goes to Multi hulls, The advantages are evident to them, and they will not go back to Mono's,
Or very few will go back to a Mono. Then its just a Personal Preference,

Interesting to see someone with a boat build in 1978 talking about grandparent cruisers, even if the recant it.

I have no illusions about me rounding the great capes unless it is as a tourist on a cruise boat. Like I posted earlier I bought a boat to pick the low hanging fruit.

No worries Salty.. don't bother me that I've done 13080 posts in 4+ years... and that's not counting the ones the 'Mods' deleted..
Makes me wonder what the total would be if I didn't go sailing

Re: Do Multihullers Ever go Back?

The constant chest-beating of multi-hull sailors is tiresome: a minority of sailors in a defensive mode? Why is that?

Still waiting on the repairs to be done, He is a very slow operator,
I had very severe words with him, I am not impressed with his work ethic which is basically non excistant, And told him so, Considering he has been paid half the cost of the repairs up front,
He has been working on it since then,
I hate relying on other people, My life is on hold till its repaired, and I can sail away again,

Just tells me you are well balanced. Nothing like driving an ULDB up wind with enough weight on the rail. However for ocean cruising I don't know. Owned an Evelyn 32 for a few years and every time we fell off a wave it was an earth shattering experience yet when you turned the corner it was absolutely exhilarating to say the least. Also if I am not mistaken aren't you the one that was selling white girls in the tropics? Won't get many in a Hobie33.
Anyway good luck with your business.
True, the H33 is not my idea of a cruising boat, but sure is fun. Sailor girls, of any skin tone, like fast boats. My GF claims that the H33 was one reason she went out with me in the first place.

Ah, but the chest beating multihullers were at one point mono hullers with no chest to beat.
