A True End to the Multi vs Mono Debate

I admit to snatching this cartoon from a member here at CF.

Re: A true end to the multi vs mono debate

Saw one similar to that, but next to the upturned multi, was the mast of a sunken mono, with the mono sailors swimming toward the multi saying "Mind if we come aboard?"

Love it!!!

It's like the (pro-multihull) saying "If God wanted for me to sail a monohull he would have given me one shorter leg"!

Re: A true end to the multi vs mono debate

Yur upside down!
This not an end, just another start.........

I'd rather be in a life raft w/all its amenities then trying to hang onto an upside down hull.

Re: A true end to the multi vs mono debate

Since I don't have the money for a multihull, I'm going to keep protecting my investment and bash the multihull as complete utter danger at sea.

Re: A true end to the multi vs mono debate

Anyone in doubt should read these two accounts:

http://www.amazon.com/Capsized-True-.../dp/0060179619
http://www.amazon.com/Spirit-Rose-No.../dp/0670834173

I didn't need convincing, but I'm certainly assured after reading the above

Monohull Bible....

Quote:
The war on multihulls (spit!) will continue unabated, until the seas are cleansed of these abominations in the eyes of god, and all are reduced to nothing more than landfill.

This is a just and right war brothers and sisters, do not waver.

That's why you go inside. BTW you won't be dry in a liferaft.
