Bridge-Deck clearance on a Catamaran.
Lets face it guys, most of the Production Cats do not have enough clearance or the have many shelves, bumps, and things that should not be there.
If it is slamming, it is causing Drag as well.
My 381 Catana
does not slam with 800mm of clear space between the hulls. She points to windward at 35deg in 25/30 knots of wind
and overtakes most if not all Monohulls.
For some reason unbeknown to me the Production Cats seem to ignore the 6 ingredients for good cat design, my cat had 5 out of 6 and I sorted the 6th one out, now I have 5.5 out of 6.
85% of Cats on the water are lucky if they have 2 out of 6 of the ingredients required, I know, I have 200 listed on my laptop
, all with calculations saying how good or mostly BAD they are. That Is why I am launching mt Website called - What Cat NOT TO BUY AND WHY.
You can contact me on bazcatanaATyahooDOTcoDOTuk and I will send you info on my boat which is for sale
and I will talk about my Web site if that is of interest.
