We have been trying to tell you politely that you are talking a load of b. But now i have had enough.
Quote (Stick to verifiable facts. There's a lot of opinions but facts speak for themselves. And the one thing that's quite clear is that there is very little experience with real offshore
fully developed heavy weather
at storm force. That's 50 knots and over gusting up to 40 % more. Look up your Beaufort
chart for force 10 and tell me that's the conditions you found so serene.)
I have been in over 50 knots many times. I have several videos. The sea always looks much flatter on film than reality. Even when we have had cargo smashed and shifting and the ship doing 35' rolls. It is obvious to me you have NFI.
(I still see no one prepared to admit that current
production models of cats have an abysmal survival rate if they are inverted in heavy weather
away from reasonably prompt rescue
services. That's a disturbing fact that people don't want to know, and that probably the same type of people (who are invariably very experienced cat skippers) end up dying more commonly that newcomers when it does go to custard.)
No one is prepared to admit it because you are spouting bullshit.
I can't even find the six occasions you quote amongst 30 years of worldwide maritime accident
I do know of four larger multihulls capsizing offshore
in the South pacific
over thirty years, with one fatality. (Out of hundreds who did the voyage every year)I know rather a lot about that one because a friend of mine rescued them. It was an older type trimaran
. Both crew survived the capsize
. However it was too rough for the lifeboat to approach close enough for the second to be rescued. The first guy was able to swim to the boat.
In the same time span there have been more than a few monohulls lost
without trace, apart from maybe an empty liferaft
. They may have rolled and sunk. But we will never know.
