Wash only. It is a 4kg Camec compact washing machine that just fits the compartment. https://www.rvsupercentre.co.nz/camec-compact-4kg-washing-machine. It’s 47kg and uses around 20l water for the...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

I’m not sure whether autocorrect problems are a win for monos or for cats. Call it a draw, with no clear victor? Kind of like both have hull or hulls that get wet.

Regarding a washing machine,...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

I don’t know about that, but on my iPhone autocorrect keeps changing ‘jib’ to ‘job’ and ‘furler’ to ‘curler’. Requires careful review and/or editing posts to avoid looking sloppy.

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

What you describe also takes place on monohulls: over tight sidestays will affect the bulkheads and over tight forestay/backstay can banana bend a boat.

For cats though, like most things, it...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Regarding plants and cruising, I expect that many countries would take them and throw them away with the other quarantined rubbish and organics. So no point having any slow growing plants if you want...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Good on you for keeping things simple. My two immediate samples for monohull live aboard are on a Bene 41 and a Westsail 32. Both have pictures in frames and potted plants and one or the other has...

Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

It’s all anecdotes - there are no statistical facts because nobody has tried to quantify them. Probably because the rates of injury and death on sailboats are vanishingly small when compared to say...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Neither on our boat unless for temporary placement before knowing where they’re actually needed. Then we tie them around stanchion bases or cleats. I was making the point that we don’t use and don’t...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

On our cat the lifelines are not used for anything other than hanging fenders - the decks are wide enough and the lifelines a long way away. Our cabin top has handrails from the aft edge forward, but...
