Actually we quite often manage a bit better than 50% TWS dead downwind, sails wing and wing. (Or near enough DDW, we usually run a little angle to avoid getting the main backwinded.)

He is remarkably dry

But - whats your point. Cats flip if they are badly horribly handled, monos sink, planes fall out the sky cars crash.

Do you have a point other than sheer bloody mindedness?

I just wish I could park a sundeer in my marina, - we have no berths large enough, and I couldnt get in at dead low tide anyway, and I couldnt afford one anyway.

It's an obvious troll - contributes nothing whatsoever to the discussion. Business as usual in other words.

Nick,

I'd still rather be in that position than the one single-minders end up in.

I guess they do stay upright, though!

Cheers,
Marshall

No No nick youv'e got it wrong. There was light winds that day so they decided to use the tide flowing over the sails to get an advantage. I bet a sundeer can't do that.

Interesting post on another thread about insurability of monos versus cats. It seems statistically you have the same chance flipping a cat as you would sinking a mono. But you have a better chance of living if your cat flips than you do if your mono sinks.

I just wish I could park a sundeer in my marina, - we have no berths large enough, and I couldnt get in at dead low tide anyway, and I couldnt afford one anyway.

Factor I wouldnt be so sure about the not affording one of these - I have a mate who imported one from states not long ago. Hes dropped a bundle as they have been particularly hard hit end of the mono market post GFC as Jedi may know....

If you were to look you would be pleasantly surprised. i think theres a 58 version on the market in Turkey for low 200k. If i went mono would be at the top of my shopping list.

They are truely great cruisers but like all boats they have compromises as you are alluding to and late at night after a few too many rums this owner has been known to admit a cat has the edge when it comes to cruising!

Finally the correct answer the speed was amazing, never flipped and not heeling at all while the tide filled the sails!



ciao!
Nick.

This is the funniest post I've read tonight.
Who will be in your crosshairs when you want to sue when the rig comes down, the sailmakers for not making a 100 year guarantee or the rig suppliers for wire which won't stand up to the same time before failure?

Sheesh.

Re: Explanation for the Increase in Multihull Popularity

Monos blah blah blah.

Multis blah blah blah.

This one has gone the same way as the others, and as a result, is now closed for business.
