Cruising Catamarans Offshore

If you build something that has the greatest stability upside down it will always try to get there.Your job as the sailor is to try and stop it.I think that is all Paulo is trying to say.I do not even classify a boat that stays capsized in a storm without being holed a sailboat to begin with.Like I have said before comparing F1 racing cars to actual cars people drive is not a comparison.They have all the cutting edge technology but don`t hit a shopping cart in the parking lot,or you will be out of the race.
