Re: Multihullers, Tell Us What You Like About Monohulls

Having recently bought a monohull I can tell you price was the biggest consideration. It is the difference between sailing of not sailing I would buy Mono. The one thing I really like about the monohull is steering on the lee side watching the hull carve through the waves. You also don't get the slamming of waves under the bridge deck. Would I have a multihull if I could afford it ? absolutley because of low draft, but for crossing oceans I like the self righting and windward ability of the mono hull.

Re: Multihullers, Tell Us What You Like About Monohulls

I like the people who sail them. Love waving to them as we sail past. Especially to windward. Standing in the cockpit or on the foredeck with a coffee in my hand. A few of them even wave back.

Must admit though, sometimes it can be tricky dodging round the masts sticking up out of the water...

Just sayin'...
