Monos don't sink if you don't reef early. Where did that come from?

Yep, I like my boat. If I didn't I'd get rid of it, not spend my time whinging on internet forums.

Re: How do you right a cat that has flipped over

I've watched that G4 video, but you don't actually see how they rigged it from full turtle. it does appear they were able to do it with fairly small boats. common multihull theory by CW, Jim brown is tow force would need to roughly equal displacement.

This boat was not rotten the decision to anchor where they did was . It had just been launched after a major refit . Also the water depth is immaterial as the boat was floating in that position.
The sistership works out of Grenada it is called ShadowFax
A pdq 36 once had both hulls ripped open on a reef and floated off again before the recue vessel arrived

I assume that you where wondering why I posted what I did and fair enough.
I was responding to the rotten boat heading of that video which I believed was not accurate ,there was a comment suggesting they were lucky the water was not deeper. In the video it comes out that the boat is floating on its own at that angle .I gave another example of a Catamaran floating after being seriously holed. I hope that clears it up

In his video, the guy said the other side was just redine it had lots of "bad areas" i was assuming "bad areas" on a wood boat or cold molded boat would refer to rot, was I wrong? Was it waves over a shallow area that caused the damage?

My bad, I took another look at the video and there are definitely signs of old bad wood there. Surprised that it got painted over.
Me and a friend where trying to buy a Spronk at one time, hard to find
