Re: Jimmy Buffett just bought a New Sail/Gamefishing Boat,

I didn't think you were baiting anyone on the double digit comment. I just seem to see it far too often since multihulls gained in popularity.

BTW I'm an equal opportunity sailor, liking both types, ie:
1) Motor Sailers by Philip Rhodes & John Alden
Motor Sailers by Philip Rhodes & John Alden - Boat Design Forums

2) Twin-keel Monohull Design
Monohull Sailboat Design


BTW, I almost bought one of these Rhodes 44 Discoverers

Re: Jimmy Buffett just bought a New Sail/Gamefishing Boat,

A killer shot for sailors who enjoy some trolling
http://www.sail-worldcruising.com/newsletter/464839


...interesting excerpt
Quote:
One of the more interesting strikes happened in the waters between Martinique and St. Lucia. My bother Mike had cast a trolling line, which we had long forgotten as we soon found ourselves in four to six foot ocean swells that made for a perfect surfing session. And while our steed for this mission was a plump charter catamaran, we were applying Laser-sailing driving skills to regularly punch the speedo into the low teens...which is precisely when the reel started screaming.


Mike battled the line and eventually hauled-in a sleek-looking Barracuda. This was a surprise to all of us, as these fast swimmers are almost never tempted by a lure that's trolling from a sloop making five or six knots, but-apparently-our surfing session coincided with this fish's dinnertime hunger pains, and he soon found himself gulping mouthfuls of air.

Re: Jimmy Buffett just bought a New Sail/Gamefishing Boat,

Gunboat 55 video & Thai picnic cat
Too bad these fellows at Gunboat ran into such financial problems.They were producing a nice product.




You might find it interesting that I thought they were inspired by a few such themes before them...
Weekender/Picnic PowerCat

Weekender/Picnic PowerCat

If you look closely you will discover that the Thai charter cat has openings all around the cabin area,.... they are just covered in canvas at this this stage due to the strong sun light in Thailand.

Something along this idea on the Thai 'picnic cat ' is one suggestion I might have given Jimmy Buffett for his new fun boat,...as opposed to that monohull mess they sold him on !! Just add a little sailing rig to that Thai picnic cat

I catch Cuda way too often at 6 kts, I dislike catching the things, mouth full of teeth and I don't eat them
