Finistere looks a bugger when its riled up. Ive never seen it when its angry, but looking at the video of the force 10...... someone almost had to move his coffee cup from the edge of the table......

Re: Do Multihullers Ever go Back?

One of the concerns I would have is having a wave take out those big portlights. I'm not anti multi, just would be concerned.

It depends on the port lights. There is no reason they couldn't be stronger than the hull they are attached to. While it used to be true that port lights were a week point on boats, it is no longer true, thought it may be common.
