Your right Full Sail, Mono vs. Multi is closer to a RELIGION anyway! Oh Jeez...now I've done it!

Now now. Let's not get our religion complicated by our politics! Or was that the other way around? At any rate, who's got some rum?

It really makes sense to me. I mean, after all, the next step up from a Challenger is a multi hull. That is the only way to get more beam for the length, and more interior space than a Challenger.
And a metal boat? Well, anyone who has cut a hole in the challenger hull knows that a metal boat is the logical next step. So... Go for it I did, and have not regreted it.

You're right Kai! But I'll bet that aluminum hull wont take a bullet like the Challenger hull can/did! Now, all I need is an extra 2.5 million...let's see, where did I put it? The Stock Market!!!! OHHHH NOOOOOO!

Full sail, it's already been tried...AND IT WORKED!!!

Kai, San Pedro Boatworks built that cat out of two Anacapa hulls. Then they sold the molds to Challenger. Ya got a point though...they made a nice STRONG cat!

You probably need to go see Miss Rudolph, the voodoo lady. (They call her that on account of her being named after that deer.) Beware of the monkey's foot.
