Generally, no. Unlike monohulls, the extreme beam and initial stability of the multihull generally limits rocking to a fairly small motion. I've been in anchorages where the incoming swell made it very uncomfortable for monohulls, to the point where some would weigh anchor and leave for another anchorage. If the swell is just at the right frequency, you can get a monohull to really roll a lot, if the swell and the boat are at the boat's resonant frequency.

Besides that, is the NS2s omnidirectional? You definitly want omnidirectional, unless you are the type of person that aims your solar stick every couple hours. Or if you want really really really long range on windless days and don't mind periodic aiming.

The fact that the NS2 covers about 60˚ of horizontal angle means that unless the wind or current really shifts, there is not a lot of need to re-point an NS2.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
