Jimbo, there are other cats that have, to use your term, 'flipped', but trying to remain within the parameters of this thread I specifically referred to "cats being delivered
...." My point was that this particular company has been found liable for pressuring their delivery crews into taking vessels, ill-equipped for offshore
passages, into harms way. The results should not be surprising - and it is noteworthy that the court found liability against the company for its irresponsible behavior, rather than rendering an indictment against multihulls - which of course, is the aim of some members. My point was that I am not aware of other similar disasters during deliveries of catamarans since - even though the boats being delivered are still not equipped for offshore
Yes, catamarans can 'flip'. Hardly news to anyone, although each incident (even the rehashing of old ones, such as these) always seems to bring out gleeful, or insulting comments from some of the monohull
contingent. This thread was directed towards the 'ethics of the big delivery companies' - and that issue was a very live one in both of these unfortunate incidents. Its too bad that many members have once again chosen to deviate from that issue in order to turn this, once again, into an opportunity for cat bashing.
