the concept of unsinkable yachts

wow
whats this all about .;.;.

lets recap in plain english ....
etaps unsinkability sucks, because they loose the keel ? ( and than you have to climb above and hold on for dear life ...

havent heard to many boats loosing their keel.... forget the canting race wonders for a second, which nobody of us are going to sail anyhow .....

I dont like etap, because they are trying to reinvent the wheel( literally) and come up with all kinds of new ideas... see the funky steering for example. I dont like them cause the foam is so thick, you loose a lot of room inside ... But for some people unsinkable boats have their merits... so let them go ahead and buy them.

if you like unsinkability you can also go with a catamarane .... lol
a whole new can of worms is about to open ...

lol
