Monohull.... Greek...originaly latin...Mono.. meaning money,.. and hull (originally Holl) meaning hole, so translated directly from latin, a hole you put money in, really it could apply to a lot of things, but commonly known today as throwing money into a hole in the water, or a single hull boat.

Trauma, by now you have gotten the "real" answer on your boat. I'd just like to add a congratulations on a 27 Hunter. So there you are in Cape Coral, with a SAILBOAT, and you are in good shape. Be happy and proud. Forums and forum participants are like sailboats themselves. They come in all types. My experience on this site has been good, and you'll find lots of very useful insight and get very good advice. I work on a boat, and my best advice to newcomers on the boat is to try and not be overcome or offended by the "boat humor" offered so freely. Sometimes we boaters have an offbeat style, which is actually part of the beauty of it. So welcome to the group, don't take "boat humor" personally, let people be whomever they want to be. From there accept what you like and disregard the rest. The point of it all is to enjoy your boat!!! So best wishes to you, and happy sailing!

Trauma: you have passed the initiation. You are now an expert, fully qualified to pass judgement on other people's sailing ability, decision making, and (indirectly) social or financial status.

Go buy a raft and a kayak, and you get to be a multihuller, complete with the secret handshake!

I thought you had to have at least 10 posts before you could be told about the secret hand shake!

I'm checking the rules!

Monohull

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Jump to: navigation, search

A monohull is a type of boat having only one hull, unlike multihulled boats which can have two or more individual hulls connected to one another.
Contents

[hide][edit] Fundamental Concept

Among the earliest hulls were simple logs, but these were generally unstable and tended to roll over easily. Hollowing out the logs into a dugout canoe doesn't help much unless the hollow section penetrates below the log's center of buoyancy, then a load carried low in the cavity actually stabilizes the craft. Adding weight or ballast to the bottom of the hull or as low as possible within the hull adds stability.
Naval architects place the center of gravity substantially below the center of buoyancy; in most cases this can only be achieved by adding weight or ballast. The use of stones and other weights as ballast can be traced back to the Romans, Phoenicians, Vikings. Modern ships carry tons of ballast in order to maintain their stability; even heavily laden cargo ships use ballast to optimize the distribution of weight.

[edit] Uses

This is the most prevalent form of waterborne vessel.

[edit] Variations

Trauma: any chance you are a blond? I'm feeling a little Traumatized!
(yep, I'm a smart a** too)

If you weren't a blond. You would have responded to all these smart a**es and ask: why isn't it called a Uni-hull? What about a Bi-hull. Hmm, what do you call a boat with three hulls. Gee I can't remember...

Chill brother. A few threads ago I asked a question about a Cutter Rigged Ketch. You're in good company.
