Re: The Mallorca Squad

I thought you (Weavis) said catamarans don't rock or tip in high winds, and that you can sit at the table and have tea without it spilling? The motion of this cat looks kinda gross... seasickness wise in only 3 meter swells.

I no longer subscribe to any threads, nor do I give a s&*! about engaging people with opposing viewpoints or internet stalkers.

I now just smile and figure that Darwin will eventually take care of their issue(s) for me.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

I also think it best to try out a catamaran before anyone buys one. Motion sickness is definitely an individual thing. I look at the motion on that boat and almost vomit watching it, but I'm sure others will watch the video of our boat in similar conditions and say the same thing. But how to try out a catamaran in high wind or big wave conditions? I guess buying a boat is a lot like buying a comfortable pair of shoes... different for everybody. No "one size fits all," but that doesn't stop the online bickering and marketing hype.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Hoppy,

How's your new camera working out? We plan on doing quite a lot of landscape photography this summer with our new setup. Recently purchased a new carbon tripod and a set of Lee ND filters.

This boating life is a little expensive. I need to cool down.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Well I have a preference for Catamarans. Watching the video above just reinforced my decision to make sure the camera is fitted properly if I take a video on a boat....

I dont worry about other peoples viewpoint regarding vessels if Im going to be buying one. I like what I like.

Be kool dude...
