Now I am not trying to cause any trouble between Multihullers and Monosailors, but when I saw this advert for the IP485 which looks a very nice boat, I just thought how pointless the aft bench seat was (unless you were at anchor
in a warm free of heavy wind
situation) and also the helmsmans seat seams a stupid design to me.
On a catamaran
I could understand them but otherwise anymore than 10 degrees of heel, those two on the stern will be fighting to stay on or if a sudden gust blows there could be a BIG splash
I would say, are IP trying to say our monohulls are as good as multihulls for the socialising, I don't think so.
