Re: Another rare 56' Aerorig cat (Hughes design) for sale

Ranchero, you are just too much. I'm done here.
At least I'm pretty sure I won't see you out sailing anywhere anytime soon.
Have fun shopping, or whatever it is you're exactly doing here. 🙄

Re: Another rare 56' Aerorig cat (Hughes design) for sale

Ranchero, just like I and many others have pointed out....why do you care? It seems you are looking for justification to go ahead and make the plunge into purchasing the lagoon. You don't need to...

Re: Another rare 56' Aerorig cat (Hughes design) for sale

You're right. Having a discussion with you is like trying to talk to a right wing, conservative door knob.
You already have all your answers. Carry on.

Re: Another rare 56' Aerorig cat (Hughes design) for sale

Obviously not prohibited. Just foolishly uncomparable.
Maybe the owners don't really want to sell?
Maybe this is just your way for you to justify your desire to buy a lagoon.
Whatever it...

Re: Another rare 56' Aerorig cat (Hughes design) for sale

Or maybe it was to disparage anyone who has taken a chance and bought or built a cat that is out of the ordinary?

Re: Another rare 56' Aerorig cat (Hughes design) for sale

So what exactly did you want to discuss? How you, as a non boat owner, are so genius about boat pricing?
Why did you start this thread? Why don't you go buy your lagoon and enjoy? 👍🏽

Re: Another rare 56' Aerorig cat (Hughes design) for sale

You know I agree with you about the price, but to assume that the rig would fall down is ludacris. It doesn't take a lot of engineering to properly design a cantilevered beam without breaking. I...

You know, before I bought my one of a kind, weird, biplane rigged, free standing masts catamaran, I spent like a year on here and elsewhere trying to financially justify the purchase of such a unique...

Re: New Harryproa 40F Design Appears

Hey Rob,
As the owner of probably the most similar design to this actually on the water, I have a question.
How will you keep the hulls from racking fore and aft?
My boat uses a large set of...

Re: Help talk me off the cliff!

I go with the planless plan.
Don't over think it.
Buy a boat, any boat, and get out there.
The plan will make itself.
If the boat needs to be sold and upgraded later because you want to sail...

Re: 45' (or so) Performance Cruising Catamaran

Well, I just raced against a very well sailed Lagoon 42 TPI last weekend. My very different, 36' biplane cat has daggerboards, and I would not have wanted to point any higher than they were. Sailing...

Yup. 38' long. I can lift them on and off the boat and move them around all by myself.

I'm sure this must've been sarcastic, and that's cool, but for the record...there were only three cats in the cruising class;

Cat2Fold wins 2016 Banderas Bay Regatta!!

After three days of racing on the amazing waters of Banderas Bay, Mexico, I'm super psyched to say that Cat2Fold has won first place in the cruising catamaran category. Yesterday, in a must win...

Re: New Lagoon 42S at 16 knots

All I can say is I'm currently tied for first place in the Banderas Bay Regatta against a well sailed Lagoon 42 (the older TPI style), and even though I'm sure I'm seeing much higher top speeds then...

Re: The sexiest Catamaran ever?

You do realize that my boat is the one in post 90 and again here.
The Spronk I have no relation to. Just happened upon it.

Re: The sexiest Catamaran ever?

You're right. Any gun thread/climate change/political threads get out of hand quickly.
