Re: Catamaran Capsizes in Galveston Bay

So, who started the fight? Looking back, the first TROLLING post came from guess who?

And again, as with all these "cat capsized" events, utter silence from all the cat owners that preach that cats don't flip...

Why the hell not? Why should all this garbage happen here?
Since you asked, I may have experience with this it that most of you don't. Garbage happens everywhere in the forum however a certain type of garbage happens here. Some of it appears to be because some people, in this thread you have been one, can't wait to rise to the bait. They don't read what has been written preferring to see boogie men in every post over giving a post an honest read. When coming across a tongue in cheek gibe they begin carrying on in a manner that seems to amuse certain other individuals and so they are encouraged to poke away at the beehive.

The solution is really very simple. Read carefully, learn the significance of various emoticons, accept that when they are being used humour is implied and finally, and perhaps most important, take the kick me sign off the back of your shirt.

Re: Catamaran Capsizes in Galveston Bay

"Some people can't wait to rise to the bait"??? So it's not the BAITERs (and there are some master baiters) who are at fault, but those who answer them?

So if I did take the time to go into the monohull forum and carry on about how dangerous and unseaworthy their boats are, (oh yeah, with a whistling smiley) that would be fine? Not confrontational at all? Only those who respond would be the trouble makers, right?

Is that really how it works?

Arrogant one way is right way old way thinking. Many things work and work well. Sailing has taught me that one option may be good 2 options are better and the option you choose is the best at the time given experience and condition. Nick has alot of experience not to diminish yours. I really think calling our boats unseaworthy is based on your inexperience at sea and some need to console your self of a fear. Pretty confident you have not seen severe weather on a small craft. Chill out till you have been served some real weather.

Wow we are so blessed to have all this expertise on this forum. Now there's the homespun psychologist.

You are aware that I haven't actually CALLED anyone's boat unseaworthy? That's being done enough by the monohullers in the multihull forum. I guess by your logic that means they are scared of something?

Sure Nick says he has a lot of experience. How much experience does he have building, sailing, cruising and living aboard MULTIHULLS? I'd be willing to bet that's a nice fat round number.

And I wouldn't dare mention my one-off fab asymmetrical cat/outrigger for fear of being pounded by both combatants.

Re: Catamaran Capsizes in Galveston Bay

getting back to the original subject of this thread, I wonder how those guys that were rescued made out. Did the cat get righted and towed back to shore. Anyone in Galveston have any more details?

Yep some folks here have lots of experience. Mine 15 years in the trades 2 years as apprentice. Started by putting the bungs in cut down the trees and then spiled planks. 12 years live aboard most anchored and moorings. have owned and cruised a Tri and monos.Getting near 40 years on the water.
I'm afraid of small details piling up to make a situation. Hence vigilance for detail. Very few of us are bitten by sharks it's these damn mosquitoes that are driving me nuts grass hopper. Angry people are confused unsure or in danger.you sound kinda pissed. If it doesn't fit then don't wear it.

You're a lumberjack?

As for your last couple of sentences..... inspired by alcohol perhaps?

Re: Catamaran Capsizes in Galveston Bay

Catamarans "might" capsize.
Monos "might" sink.
Either way you're F#*ked
