Based on the way a number of threads on CF have recently gone, I'd actually suggest a newbie wondering about monos vs cats would likely learn more from that video than asking a question here. They'd certainly come away afterwards with a better impression of the average cruiser as they'd avoid experiencing the bickering.
Amen! The cat vs mono business is so polarized, it is hard for a person who is genuinely curious to get any really objective information. People should understand that aggressively expressed partisan points of view often turn off people who are just looking for objective truth.

After seeing that interview, my interest in catamarans actually went up a whole notch.

Re: S/V Delos discusses mono vs. cat with cruising couple.

I think these SV Delos folks do some good to the cruising community.
Its sad that very few young folks have enough money, time, freedom, etc to go cruising. Most crews out there are old farts.
Some fresh blood is good!


This crew is able to live the dream in their younger years. They still have the strength and the balls to enjoy something as stupid as not contributing towards their retirement fund.

How many folks do you know that always wanted to do something like this but never found the time / balls / funds to go while they were still in a physical shape to do it?


What I particularly like about Delos is that they don't just take without giving (in contrast to other folks that rely on sponsors). Instead of begging from sponsors they produce something creative and fun that a lot of people like, and they provide it basically "for free".
Good for them that some like it enough to donate a buck or two so they can continue.


I really prefer these videos over the 69th book of some meaningless cirumnavigation of an aging couple in a disfunctional relationship.

I still haven't seen the vid (low bandwidth) but rabbi's comment is pretty spot on ✌️

Re: S/V Delos discusses mono vs. cat with cruising couple.

Everyone talked over each other, I think they were nervous. The husband did it most but he was one of two being interviewed.

I liked how even when discussing the positives of cats, he dampened the message slightly, citing choices captains make.

Someone on YouTube warned Brian against showing the bottom of your feet to your hosts.. Waiting for that guy to show up here as well.

I thought so. In 15 knots on the beam, on passage, our 35' monohull, loaded down for cruising, that was a racer-cruiser *in 1983* (not any more) can do mostly 7 knots, so 8 knots seems kind of anticlimactic for a performance cat of 43 feet.

Re: S/V Delos discusses mono vs. cat with cruising couple.

Time for CF version 2.0 where comments that don't add to the discussion are downvoted and removed from the thread. This thread is 70% good solid content and 30% unrelated nonsense or guys stuck in a job they hate bitching.

As someone who has experience in both (I started sailing monohulls and now sail my catamaran in Mexico) I give big props to Brian and SV Delos. The information was good (it wasn't meant for experienced sailors who have history on both types of boats) and no doubt will help many folks out there better understand the +/- between each. Keep living the dream Brian, Karin, Brady, Arthur, and Amy!

Re: S/V Delos discusses mono vs. cat with cruising couple.

I think it was a great interview and gave me a few tidbits of knowledge as well.

I don't watch Delos for the commentary.

Re: S/V Delos discusses mono vs. cat with cruising couple.

Strangely, last night after dinner on a friends yacht I found myself saying 'yeah no it was delicious' I have no idea why (it was delicious) I didn't even know I used that 'phrase' but I guess CF made me aware of it and it played back in my head after I said it, so thanks for the new complex guys

Re: S/V Delos discusses mono vs. cat with cruising couple.

Here is an excellent blog about a guy that had a Catana but wanted more so he had an Outremer 5X built. She's still in the Med but they plan to sail her back to AUS in stages. http://sailwildling.com/welcome-aboard/

Here is a short from his YouTube channel

To be a proper Orstraylean Bogan you need to put "Absolutely at the start of each sentence; "Absolutely, yeah no it was delicious"

Re: S/V Delos discusses mono vs. cat with cruising couple.

Haha thanks for the tip but I'm actually trying to get the queens English down. It helps when speaking to non Aussies to avoid the 😯 wth is this guy saying, maybe he's has a mental disability, vague look. Funniest thing is when I speak with other Aussies and Jen does the look and says it sounds like we are saying 'nyang nyang nyang nyang'

Not happy Ourh, If you are going to refer to our country, at least spell it correctly, its:

STRAYA or in your use above, STRAYAN.

Please take more care, further bogan doesn't have a capital b. Winnie Blues on the other hand is capital W and capital B. Its not hard, please try and get it correct.

I wonder how many of the non Strayans will get the reference to Winnie Blues?
