I am a cruising catamaran
newbie and am trying to learn as much about modern
catamarans as possible. Are there any recent books
design and sailing that you would recommend? Older books
would be fine if the information is still relevant to newer boats. I have been sailing all my life so I am not looking for books on how to sail although books on how to sail large modern catamarans would be helpful.
I went to the library and pretty much only found books on how to make your own boat out of plywood
cement that were pretty old as well as books on how to sail Hobie type small cats. (I used to own and race
a Hobie 18.) The local Barnes and Noble bookstore had nothing on the subject of cruising catamarans. I found one book written by the ASA
about catamarans at the library but the information was for people with virtually no boating
experience...explaining how to tie fenders etc. I have had a few naval architecture courses so something at that level I think could understand.
