you refer vaguely to an event 20 years in the past and i have to look it up and "do my homework"?
get real...

but thank's to mike it seems like 100% of the cats at "ground zero" - as you called it - had to be rescued...
the percentage of monohulls which needed assistance is unknown since there is no figure on how many boats were in there altogether...
but a part of them made it through without needing any help, not like the 2 cats...
5 issued a mayday, 1 cancelled the mayday later 3 rolled and 1 got dismasted by an uncalled rescue vessel which came along side and collided with the boat...
is that it?
is that the "evidence" of the seaworthiness of multihulls?
well... 100% of them needed rescue... very seaworthy!
