What to do ??

My wife is really stuck on the Monohulls, she likes the Hunter 33 and Beanateu and I really want a Trimaran! I never liked having the same thing that everyone else has!

We would mostly do tooling around in a bay area, but my Dad might want to do some racing! He has always wanted to race again, I really liked the corsair I sailed on.

Get the Hunter, maybe it'll break into three pieces.

Just curious...did you ever ask your wife why she is so set on a monohull??? Is it because of the interior space, which is a bit tight on a trimaran? Is it because of the capsize issue? Is it because she has a dysfunctional inner ear and needs to be at a 30˚ tilt?

I would highly recommend you get and read Chris White's The Cruising Multihull. While the book is a bit long in tooth, it is still very much applicable to multihulls today.

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.

Multihulls may not roll much, but they pitch like crazy.

You are warned.

They don't self-right either.

While a multihull may invert, they tend not to sink, since they are not weighed down by a large chunk of metal and have multiple hulls. In theory, the ultimate position of stability for a multihull is upside down... however a well-designed cruising multihull isn't very likely to capsize unless the person sailing it screws up badly.

Monohulls self-right but also have a disturbing tendency to sink. They have a position of ultimate stability too... upright and sitting on the ocean floor. And MOBs, the leading cause of death while boating, are far more likely to happen on a boat that is heeled over 30–40˚ than they are on a multihull that is heeled 10˚.

What do you mean and what are you talking about, what experiences have you seen with your statement? What type of winds did you Pitch it?
