Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Mike thanks for your post it got me to read about this tragedy. Interesting discussions about tactics. I had asked earlier in this thread about storm tactics for multi hulls. Would you or others care to offer comments. I know with my high aspect keel and balanced rudder my first line of defense is fore reaching then the series drogue comes out. Hoving too just doesn't work well without a lot of tuning.I had wondered if like tactics with mono hull have changed with transition away from full keel boats has tactics changed now we see the current generation of multi flyers so different than the prout39 s of the past?
