Heavy weather tactics on catamaran

Been reading books and articles on heavy weather tactics but they are not specifically referring to catamarans. Sounds like they were written for monos. I would think that some tactics would be different and some overlap. Let me knew what your experiences are on a cat and if you know any good references for catamarans. Thanks.

Re: Heavy weather tactics on catamaran

My experience has been that asking questions about multihulls seem to get better answers if asked in the multihull forum. There have been several threads on this topic in the multihull forum and one recurring thought is not all multihull are equal so not all multihulls should use the same heavy weather tactics.

Another consideration is that not everyone agrees what heavy weather is.
