Well, I cant say I'm surprised. I knew this tread would eventually degrade into a pissin' match. So, here's what I'm gonna do; I'll wager that no other man here sails a boat that has been both a monohull and a multi! Here I post the pictures to prove it. First, my boat as a monohull. Then, two pics of the exact same hull design built as a CATAMARAN! Both designs have sailed tens of thousands of miles...Now, WHAT SAY YOU?

PS; I'm not kidding, they are the same hulls!

Are you sure it wasn't two boats who tried to go under a low bridge?

It looked nicer as a mono. Must have been pretty roomy as a cat though..

The cat was the Research Vessel Beta, built and owned by the owner of the old San Pedro Boatworks in CA. She was built as a treasure salvor, and plied the Carribean hunting with Mel Fischer of Atocha fame. He used the last two Anacapa hulls they molded, and there was a provision to sling a mini-sub under the bridge deck...
