Multihullers should make better lovers , especcially on board since we have California King sized beds of 6 x 7 ft and the max healing angle is 10 degrees and do not forget the headroom above the beds of 5 feet ?
I am sure in the Dolphin it should be about the same

Greetings
Gideon

The original question was cruising mono versus cruising multi performance. As such the incident is relevant to this subject (ie performance). The fact that it was recent and the guy was a jerk about it simply made it more memorable. It would have been equally as memorable if it had been a mono, the rules are the rules.

Trust me he was yelled at and no, by rule, we cannot hit him but we would have loved giving him a love tap.

sometimes rules do not apply depending on the situation

Gideon, I would no more hit a multi on purpose then a mono on purpose. You are a racer, you understand, that rule does not get broken.

A few years ago we cleared a hole at the boat end. After the race I found out that 3 boats to weather a guys leg was crushed when the fleet went up. Not our fault but I am firmly convinced bumping boats must always be avoided.

I agree with you never bump a boat no matter cat or mono but the skipper should hear about his (or her ) poor behavior

Trust me Gideon, I let him know later in the bar he was a wanker. The owner did not feel like spending the afternoon in the protest room tossing a boat that was not in the same fleet. Can't blame him, we enjoyed a pitcher of mudslides instead.

Cheers

Joli

Back to cruising multi vs cruising mono performance.........

Ok back to the practicalities. The owners berth! Why is it Gideon whenever I see photos of big cat staterooms there are those full mattress bunks squeezed into skinny hulls with no storage and sometimes not even shelves for the accessories needed for a night of amour or ever a popular book on tantric sex . Big mattresses?? Are you guys trying to compensate for something? (lol)

You mean like our guest berth here. Obviously no storage at all Not for 18 inches deep under the berth, or the fold down table under the calender, and what's that shelf doing there 36 inches high, 18 inches deep for 7 feet along the outer hull. Did I mention the cubby holes?....Nope, not one bit of storage........LOLOLOLOLOL

I stand corrected! Thanks Frolic, most of the photos I have seen...they look like coffins for two!

Great looking interior!

And what size coffins and 6 cubic meters of storage in each hull. We do not try to put as many beds as possible in our cats we build for private customers only so we have lots of space .
Pelagic was your yacht build in South Africa of aluminium at South African shipyards in Durban?

Gideon,
That is a very tastefully done interior. No gawdy colors or ugly ornamentation. I'm really looking forward to seeing pics of your first 58 footer.

Pelagic,

Actually the forward berth is referred to as steerage.....LOL It does have storage though with steps built in also. Our berth has tons of storage, and steps up to the bed. I will try to remember to find some pics, or take some..........I was just being a dork, and having a wee bit of fun

Thanks for the compliment David
The nicest thing is that you choose the colours for the interior from about 20 choices of veneer , 25 leather colours and 5 Foam Vinyl colors for the ceiling.
You and your partner or wife get a list of all the different choices to make and we do different interiors so it is possible to get a complete personalized yacht. even the bed linnen, towel color and the crockery patterns you have to choose. see attachement and the new possible colour scheme with glow in the dark paint

Same here!.... I've yet to meet a yacht I didn't like!


Cheers!

p.s Hi Gideon, StarGazer was built in Holland from Corten Steel... BTW aren't you afraid with your new glow in the dark paint that you are going to start a lot of UFO sightings?? lol

Well yes, you did make a good point about multi performance. The multi gained 200 metres on you in 4 minutes. Going to windward. Where mono's rule. Apparently.
