I have been absent without leave for some time, but finally have something new to report:
Helped sail a 41' cat from Pattaya, Thailand
to Koh Chang - a lovely island near the border with Cambodia
. Not much wind
at the beginning or end of the trip, but we had two reefs
in at one point, with 20knts out of the northeast.
It was an enjoyable trip, but confirmed my preference for monohulls over multis (sorry folks). I just don't care much for the motion on multis. I don't get seasick, but the pitching cum slight rolling with no keel
feels like riding on a piece of styrofoam, IMHO. This is the second time I have taken an extended trip on a large cat - two different designs.
Will post some photos soon.
Hope all is well with others.
