Re: Salty catamaran tips.

Any chance you can share what this is before I undertake a 5mb blind download?

Re: Salty catamaran tips.

Sure, To someone like me who is a novice I found the info wide ranging from ear-infection to anchoring. Topics like entering harbours at night etc. A lot of seamanship experience. The author has been cruising for five years and shares his practical experiences on board a catamaran.

all the best paul.

Re: Salty catamaran tips.

The download is unfortunately not naked photos of Nicole Kidman

It is 289 pages of crusing tips, based on crusing a Lagoon 440, but with lots of general information.
Basically a free book.

I have only scanned it at this stage but strongly recommended.
Lots of great practical information.

Thanks salticrak.

It's 99% stuff you already know, 1% stuff that doesn't matter.

It's good for a newbie.

Re: Salty catamaran tips.

The author is quite confused about sail trim. Roach is NOT the pocket (draft) of the mainsail. Wow.

Re: Salty catamaran tips.

The download isn't available anymore, at least not when I try to access it. Any chance someone could upload it somewhere else?
