I Am a Cat Sailor

OK this proves it. Cat sailors are better than mono sailors.

Re: I am a cat sailor

Having sailed a Hobie 16 from 1969-1984 and then a NACRA 5.8 from 1984 to Present........I see no humor in that video. The old guy is right about all of it. On the Hobie I've seen big busted crew, (Center of gravity is too high) being slung forward and stuck to the jib upside down hanging unceremoniously from the trapeze.. The NACRA has never done that so top heavy crew is OK.

I've just retired and actively seeking a monohull for bluewater cruising but I still race and daysail my NACRA. About 19' of waterline, 250' of sail not including a 175 square foot spinnaker and around 420 pounds makes for a ton of excitement in 25 kt winds. I don't win as much as I used to because I've lost some mobility. I can't crawl across the tramp and get on the wire before the boat can tack.

If I could ever find that silly S.O.B. that called these the "Golden Years", I'd stomp on him with my replaced hip until my by-pass exploded.

That was a cute video and I have used some of those lines.....and I thought I was original.
Failure is most often times a temporary condition........
Giving up is what makes it permanent.

Re: I am a cat sailor

I'm not sure whether to laugh or press charges for identity theft.
