Thanks for all the input thus far.
I realize that a multihull may not be best suited, however, I am only going to own one boat right now.
To be clear I am not going to grossly overload any boat, and hope to not overload at all. Instead of specifying that I want to carry 6000lbs,
I should have asked: with any existing/older design, what is the highest payload avaliable?
I dont have a specific cargo in mind, however I am very familiar with the se AK salmon troll fishery and may decide to start out in that type of fishery with a boat like this. Other uses i can realistically see within my lifetime would include research
, cargo, and charter
. I am not expecting to make money
with this, to be clear. More along the same lines as "hobby farming" etc.
I realize a monohull likely has potential for more payload. however, for me, at this time, it has to be a multihull. Even if the hulls are so wide that it will only sail downhill
