Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

The interesting point of this intense and long running thread is how little factual information if presented to support the theme that people are moving from monos to cats in any meaningful numbers,...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

'Nuff said"??? I hope you will take with a grain of salt (water) and while keeping in mind that they made it, your description basically says only those with the minds of children would actually...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Actually, contrary to popular opinion among cat' owners I am bored with this thread, and you are the fortunate recipient of my last post to it. You are one of the more fact free people I have...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

I already have a cat. No need to plan one. He typically sleeps on my pillow, not his own. When onboard he only goes outside in pleasant weather. He does eat his food dry, and it is possible he would...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Oh, I failed to respond to this portion of your post. Despite the agreement the there are fewer cats than monos, I have seen far more cats on the beach or caught in the surf (not so much rocks for...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

OK, I will use your self description. Your newest post qualifies as more of the same. Comparing 50 years ago to the present provides, once again, nothing in connection with the claim. I would mean...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Huh!! That that is fuzzy thinking and unrelated to logic. Are you a statistician or a politician by chance? Even if so, it means nothing. Totals from one builder/manufacturer only tell about that...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Despite what may be doubts from many others, I fully accept this as the best explanation of all. I did notice my computer had failed to make the usual automatic adjustment to the orientation for the...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

I wish this thread would end. It is built upon an unsupported premise, and just took off because so many, myself included, bit into the early responses. The unsupported premise is the implication of...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Dear fellow harbor bums: Attempting to how a landlord, including marina operators actually determines costs, let alone prices/rents is something you would need to take up with every one of them on an...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

I give up for now. I prefer monos to cats for specific reasons. The opinions of others are not going to change my opinion. So what!? The beauty of cruising and sailing is freedom. Freedom to escape...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

I've read many if not most of the weather related tragedy stories, long and short, from the past 50 years or so applicable to races and regattas, as well as many reconstructions/accounts of the solo...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

OMG, this warrants a major clarification that will apply to all of my posts in this thread: I am a cat person, but not a cat' person, although I am sure most, if not all, cat people, and probably...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

There is no way to reach your conclusion reliably from the cited facts. They may have been abandoned prematurely. Basically, this is because we do not know if some or all rolls or the loss of the...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Yep. The only offers I get are from Australia, and they are automatic decllnes. To the others from oz, no insult intended. :biggrin:

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

We, in the United States, have recently learned about what you describe. As a negotiating technique. Might work for some, in some situations.

I can say, while in general I would prefer to cross an...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Sounds to me like another study that could be categorized as a precursor to an eventual nanny state proposal. If air bags on automobiles are good (and I agree they are) we probably need padded booms...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Absolutely correct about the Roams, and it sounds as if you are aware of the others as well. What you lack (as we all do) is much information about the vessel building and luck in the Pacific. We...

Au contraire, the wind is free; catching it is not. Lunches are not free either. TANSTAAFL.

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

That could be a fine choice for me when I become old, but I am only 73. Among the problems is being able to afford the fuel. Do not forget that the wind is free.

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Well, I did it and must admit I saw one cat among the dozens (scores?) of images. But if you want a cat, it is no skin off my nose, nor is it any from yours if I do not. Just to be a turd, as many...

Re: The Reason People Are Moving Away From Monohulls

Anyone with an interest in the subject might want to Google, "offshore oil service vessels" to see what results you get in the photos. Since the oil companies can afford whatever they want it might...
