Interesting essay about the HISTORY OF MULTIHULLS (author: Michael Kingdom-Hocking)

...just like to share two short, interesting essays written by the author Michael Kingdom-Hocking about the HISTORY OF MULTIHULLS

Such historical reviews give me a good feeling about where we are today. It's a more easy understanding about the boat constructions we see nowadays floating around as the modern contructions mostly are a following up (not in the sense of a revolution but as an evolution) on the basis our sailing ancestors created as pioneers.

Sailing Catamarans & Trimarans (part 1 of 2)...

I see you are also a member of boatdesign so I guess you have read the historical multihulls thread. For the others here there's lots of good stuff in there including a few posts by the crabman.

Crab's invasion everywhere, hm ?! Seems to become a very crabby Saturday :-)

As I am very newly in both forums, I didnt know about Crabman's postings there, yet. But I did some postings in this tread, already. I think, it was started by Gary Baigent whom I know. Very profoundly knowledge about multihulls, this guy... and a keen boat builder

Anyhow.... many tks, Sand crab !
