Re: Multi-hull capsize anti turtling device (mast float)

I don't remember ever capsizing while on a catamaran. It's ALWAYS been a pitchpole and flop over on one hull - look to see what happened to the crew on the trapeze, usually not good - and then get to the righting lines before it's too late. How do you right a cat that's gone all the way by yourself? Every time I've watched there has been a power boat involved.
