When I was a kid ( early 70's ) I sailed a hobie 18 and worked for Sol Cat building 14's,16's and 18's; at that time none, including the hobie had floatation foam .
The Sol Cat 18 was almost identical to a Nacra, which if I was thinking of a adventure like this one, would be the cat of choice for me, a Nacra 18
1978 Tayana 37
Freedom comes when youíre ready to sail away. True freedom comes when you donít have to return
Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
