No, that type of catamarans mostly for coastal sailing. It's possible to sleep on catamarans




(www.ducky.com.ua :: ) when anchored.

Usually we use plain for team and catamarans delivering. But in that particular case container by ship(for catamarans ) was chipper.

About 1 month. Sailing and a little tracking.

Remarkable!
New desktop image for me.

Now when my wife asks me what's it from I say "Oh honey, that was one of my sailing trips before we got married" in my best poker face.

Re: Greenland 2011 on Inflatable Catamarans

Just amazing. I could look at those pictures all day. I've always wanted to cruise Greenland, and now you've really lit the fire.

I notice you camped ashore . . . did you do that every night, or did you spend some nights on the boat?

Did you have any luck with food foraging there? I was wondering if clams and mussels are found on that coast, or if it's just too cold and iced-up for them to grow near shore. Any fishing?

Did you ever feel trapped by the floating ice, or was it fairly easy to navigate around?

Sorry for a delaying. I was in Denmark to get our equipment from Greenland.

Mostly we slept on land.

There was enough mussels, mushrooms, fishes (I'll publish pictures in nearest future).

We were one time trapped in ice. It was quite dangerous situation, but we had luck.
