TOO damned funny, and this is not the picture of a sailing vessel. So someone please advise me as to what it is.

monohulls? they look more like boats and sail more like sail boats. if i needed to go faster than everybody else then i would have a powerboat .. but I don't.

That's a real pretty sailboat. As far as these unimaraners go, slowly, you can take 'em to water but can't stop 'em from sinking.

Well if I had 5000 extra pounds around my waist, I would not bring up the subject either.

Of course its brilliant - like most prejudice it directly reinforces and supports pre-existing bias or beliefs. - And only monos SHOULD be built in floating footpath material.

To be fair, some Multis do look like they were designed to be made out of ferrocement, and as they say - immitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Wow. I kind of missed this one - thanks for the laughs, everyone.

Did the cat charter thing once. NEVER again...

Speaking of which:

When chartering, a mono is about 2/3 the price of a cat!

WILDGOOSE,

LIGHTEN UP. Maybe you haven't noticed, but this is NOT a serious discussion.

As somebody who has plenty of time on both monos and cats, I am one of the few people who think they each have their advantages. I own a mono, and will not likely change unless I win the lottery.

1236…. Owner’s of Monohulls have been able to teach their women that it is ok to lean over….. Multis deny that this will ever happen and are at a loss....when it does!

You can take this any way you like....

.....of course that means ..."Multis can do it standing up" so I guess this ones a tie...Lol

Mono sailors can have a tongue in cheek tread about why Mono’s are better and not become unglued when not everyone agrees with them!
