Re: I Guess Catamarans do Sink

Catamarans never sink, turn over, or trip over. Anyone having a monohull is risking life.

It was sailing so fast ( I know, right?) when it the reef, the salon top flew off and ended up on the beach. Or Im thinking the owners wanted an open bridgedeck design instead and that's where they dumped the removed top....

From what little I know I suspect that cats are less likely to sink than monohulls. But anything can happen out there. Mother Nature can be plenty fierce, nothings 100% unbreakable, and anyone (builder, skipper) can make a mistake. And watertight bulkheads are only watertight until they get a hole in them or the hatch is left open.

Re: I Guess Catamarans do Sink

a very experienced friend of mine was delivering a 46' cat from Panama to St. Maarten to be used in a charter business, one straight shot. First night they hit a container and according to my friend it was barely 20 minutes from impact to stepping UP into the life raft. I imagine given the right set of circumstances, everything can sink. They tied the liferaft to the container until rescued. The sailboat went straight to the bottom.

Re: I Guess Catamarans do Sink

To answer the question from my point of view - I decided,years' ago , that a mono would be gone in less than a minute. However , a cat will still be there.Perhaps not in pristine condition , but at least I would have the chance to rig the dinghy and do a "Capn. Bligh" ! What isthe point of hopping in to a liferaft any dying slowly ?

Re: I Guess Catamarans do Sink

I would be interested in what made the Cat vs container incident so lethal for the Cat. Breaching both hulls? Won't a cat stay afloat with one hull breached?

I'm a tri advocate. Probably not as fast as a cat but less likely to pitch pole. On the other hand a mono can be knocked down and come back up

Just a matter of choice.
