and batteries will sink, but the uncombusted goo left over by the fire will probably still be floating around for a few years.
All this aside, what's the issue? Many of us choose multihulls (which include trimarans, as well) for their performance. Sort of like sports cars, pickups and SUVs, or for that matter minivans and antique cars.
is built more like an airplane than a gravel truck for a reason. Maybe it would be more instructive to think about what you want to use the boat to achieve. Do you want to carry a lathe and welding shop, along with the 400 gallon watertank, 40 HP outboard
and waterski RIB
? Or are you willing to forego many of those pleasures for the lifting a hull
in a zephyr and regularly making 200 mile days? That, it seems to me, should be what your conversation could address. Both forms of watercraft are safe, when handled by competent crew, both offer their own charms and sacrifices. What rings your bells?
