Re: Owned More Than One Type of Multihull ?

Its a Schionning design - Radical Bay 800. See Mr Schionnings Designs - Here and see the design background to that particular style of boat - have a look at sailing designs - Radical Bay series. I would think it would be a very fun boat to sail

Re: Owned More Than One Type of Multihull ?

i was really amazed with Neel45 trimaran which seems a very spacious cruiser and great liveaboard, even charter tri. Check their site www.neel-trimarans.com/en/neel-45/caracteristiques-neel45/
this design has several amazing features which i have my doubts about, like no main sheet traveller, helm area not covered, i dont like cats or tris having anchor that has to swing forward from under the trampoline which could give lots of chafing and other probles. Great to hear others on this design

i will never afford that Neel45, at least not alone. It is a good tri to analyse multihull issues with though.
Then i want to draw attention to the other extreme basic cat: James Wharram Designs - New Ethnic Polynesian Double Canoe built by Hans Klaar
roughing it up can be great fun, i really cant imagine the crab sail trimming well . My Tiki30 mainsail had mast sleeve and gaf, worked very well, in a sudden blow drop gaf and depower fast. Hanked on headsails i still like very much and on innerstay of my catalac10m i have hank on jib and storm jib behind rollerfurler genoa. The mast on the Rapa niu are not high at all seems easy to control sails.

pioneer stuff this waka, i am happy to have had 2 year sailing/liveaboard with my Tiki30, i think any multihuller would learn lot about the basics of mulihull sailboats by sailing these cats held together by ropes. However much you tension those rope lashings the cat still twists in every wave, not in uncomfi manner but feels right, gives meaning to the term weather helm.

Re: Owned More Than One Type of Multihull ?

So, if you were choosing now between a Tiki and similar age and size Catalac, which way would you go?

Byron

You're asking if people would want to own a wood boat vs a Fiberglass boat in the tropics?

Is that really a tough choice?
