Re: Windlass on a Catamaran

Webejammin, Yes I noticed that some people put down the Gemini's. I guess It must make them feel better about the clunker that they sail. I don't own a Gemini but I think they are pretty cool boats.

Re: Windlass on a Catamaran

I think you guys should read the thread again. Noone has put down the Gemini at all.

Re: Windlass on a Catamaran

Yeah - agreed the Gem is one of the best value boats ever made, good little jigger.

Have you contacted Performance Cruising - they may have a number of examples of how this issue has been addressed on some of their boats.

To show you that a 6' drop is quite "abnormal"

How is that any help to me?
Maybe it will make you ask why if most all other boats have a decent size drop in the locker, why not the gemini?
I have no answer to that question, but I do wonder why?

Re: Windlass on a Catamaran

It seems as though some of us need to augment our self-esteem, by criticizing others.
Generally (and specifically) WE DON'T DO THAT SORT OF THING, HERE ON CF.
Sorry for shouting.

Re: Windlass on a Catamaran

The anchor locker is a bit shallow and needs a metal slide for chain rode, but all boats are a compromise in some ways.

I made a mistaque I said there is a 'forum' on Gemini's but it is a 'social group' of which there is a few Gemini owners signed up. Most Gemini owners are on a Yahoo forum just to chat about Gemini's where you list your boat number to be taken serious.
