Good points in favour of a MULTIHULL. Which we are supposed to be talking about in the MULTIHULL FORUM aren't we?

It sure is. However, multihulls have high shockloads in their rigging instead (because they don't heel which would absorb those shocks). A trimaran gets best of both in many of these comparisons....

But I'm sure happy that somebody understood what I wrote :-)

Re: Boom Furling Pros and Cons, Please

Do you understand that trimarans are multihulls too?

Sure! Do you understand that I don't dislike multihulls and even like some a lot? :-)
