Something I have always wondered about (but am unwilling to try without expert guidance).
I had wondered about it before our last haul out
which was really not too bad at around $500 for the round trip haulout (although I realized I was under the misinformation that "haulout" meant the boat - when they told me to haul out
my wallet when we were done......
I have seen before where some Scandinavian boats from times past (and still do for all I know) use sturdy "braces" (no idea what they are really called) that attach to the port and starboard sides of the boat to keep it upright on a beach as the tide goes out. This is what I am more interested in rather than actually just careening it on the beach and letting it fall over as the tide goes out. Ok, I'm really more interested in saving the $500 every couple of years for hauling the Ingrid.
Ok, here it comes - let me have it you catamaran
guys! If we could afford a cat....
