They have them on the racing offshore multihulls.....but that does not prevent them to capsize...at leas always.

edit: it seems that I am saying that fast multihulls are dangerous and that is not what I wanted to say. No, they demand an experienced skipper and prudence in what regards the amount of sail carried in bad weather or unstable conditions like squalls, but they are obviously more tricky to sail than a comparably fast mono-hull, that typically will be a slightly bigger and a performance cruiser.
