Cruising Catamarans Offshore

windforce with no waves ....

Thats Ice Sailing buddy and those babies indeed tip over once in a while

all way to many numbers Paulo, real life aint numbers, but situations mother nature throws at us, no engineer with all the numbers in hand will survirve the little quircks real life can dish out for us.
The model in the 10 year old test or is it 20 years old ? I forgot? has quite a sailplan on it, couldnt find the "numbers" of that anywhere. but I have to admit , got a little sleepy after a while reading it.

I have no clue what the stability factor or whatever is of my boat. I know if it blows the boat will lean, if its leaning to much i need to put a reef in and change headsails , if it doesnt lean the reef comes out and something big needs to be attached to the pointy end

You can check it for me , its a j30 .... probably dangerous as hell

lotsa fun though
