Re: Do Cat Owners Actually Beach Their Cats ?

The Outremers are specifically designed to take the bottom on their hulls, usual caveats apply, check for rocks etc on the tide before, and so on.

Would be smarter to add length to the keels because people added things to boats that weigh same as a person would only take two dive tanks? So the boat would full over no thanks or the beach was a bit uneven ? Dangerous.

My cat I had loaded up gear over max for boat two fold, I had it on sand bags tide went out and was sitting on three points was safe as anything.

Re: Do Cat Owners Actually Beach Their Cats ?

We beached our Spirited 380 for the first time at Fraser Island to clean the bottom down, it was a calm day and soft sand but had no impact on the boat. I had modified the rudder design to make them longer and narrower, but it had no impact while sitting on the sand.

spititcat,

Does your Spirited 380 have a beaching keel;

I understand most do not and the rudders would take some force. Must be strong.

Re: Do Cat Owners Actually Beach Their Cats ?

I beach my 9m Sagitta (daggerboard version) twice a day. It's parked on soft mud, in a pool just off the river that never gets any waves in it.

Adding some 3" deep oak mini-keels was one of the first jobs I did with the boat. For me, it means free parking, here in the south of England (where moorings and marinas are really expensive for a cat). I've also dried out many times in Brittany, the Algarve - anywhere there is a tide, the bottom is clear of rocks and fairly level.

Beachability is one of the most important aspects of a multihull for me. You get to some nice places, free and secure parking places , and are able to antifoul and make small repairs with ease.

Re: Do Cat Owners Actually Beach Their Cats ?

I have beached my Lagoon 39 several times. The owner's manual even suggests the periodic careening of the boat for routine maintenance and inspection.
Previously I dried out my Gemini 105MC on the beach and in drying harbours.
I'm not concerned about abrading the antifouling paint and have not had any problems. However, I do pay attention to the weather, the location and the condition of the seabed.

How do you antifoul the bottom of the rudders and mini-keels? I have purchased an air jack to lift 1 hull at a time. Yet to try!
