Some ammo for the Multi Basher's

Just got back from getting pic's of a mate powercat and saw a racing cat that flipped in the Brisbane to Gladstone race this year but I'm not sure about the new low profile look cabin

Her name is Rogntudjuuu and she is NewCal based and a sistership to Raw Nerve.

They would have been giving her a workout as she is a 30 knot + boat, so it is no surprise when they occasionaly come unstuck.

She apparently had a bit of a grind on the reef before getting righted and lost the large carbon airblade mast.

Doesn't look to bad from the jetty so i'm sure she'll be back out terrorising the fleet's agin soon.

That looks more like a trihull that doesn't want to get it's ass wet.

Which hull do you love?

There will always be arguments and preferences between and about multi-hull, mono-hulls, power boats, sailboats, big breasted women, large butt women, skinny women and dog breeds.

No one knows just exactly what turns a man on about his woman or boat. Doesn't matter as long as they both float.

BTW, one favorite Steven Wright quip:
"We'll find her when the leaves blow away 'cause I'm not raking 'till spring".

Boat no longer inverted - All crew alive - all crew relatively uninjured - boat recovered and floating, this of course is the main problem with multis - they make excellent TV and photo footage. A self respecting mono goes straight to the bottom so nothing to photograph and pass comment on.

BTW there were two of these sorts of boats in the race - this one (Rontajdju) and RAW NERVE. Raw Nerve won the race and has a rig 2 metres taller than the one that went over - that was interesting I thought.

Unless a mono has been holed, rolling over usually results in the boat returning to a correct, keel down, attitude. Sometimes with the rig fully intact. Otherwise a jury sailing rig made with the mast stump or boom will get her crew going.

Some are built for speed some are built for comfort, same with boats

Yep, when they showed that megabuck lump of lead sailing into Gladstone, you could just catch a glimpse of Raw Nerve already sitting there. Probably been there for hours, after sailing a longer course too.

Equally, often a multi can be holed, or even have a complete hull ripped off, and yet still stay afloat.

There seems to be a lot of chatter from the multihull boaters that their boats are better. I'm not sure why that even matters or is so strongly argued. Seems to me that if you have canvas up and are moving about without any other power, you're a sailor.

The more someone boasts about their preferences, the more insecure they are about their convictions. I'm sure there is a lot more to share about multihulls than how much better they are over monohulls.

Who cares!

Heron,

I had a Westsail 32 for five years, and loved it. A dream come true. I have had a Privilege 39 catamaran for 13 years, and loved it. Another dream come true.

It was the same dream, but different boats.

I'm with Dave,

Had 2 mono's, they were pretty good, 1 was great and cheap as chip's, and as a wednesday arvo racer I would have it again for a bit of fun.

For me now though Multi is the go as my cruising ground's are extensive, and anchorages and water is usually fairly shallow where I want to play.

But this was just a crash picture, not a start an argument for or against either picture.

In our own mind's , well most of us anyway, our current style of hull configuration is as good as it get's.

Also it's pretty hard for people to coment on the for or against either hull config. unless you have sailed a variety of boat's in a variety of conditions. Most Multi guy's have actually done that, as we mostly had a mono or 2 before, but I doubt the same can be said for mono guy's making the comment's regarding multi's.

Dave
