We had a 50 knot squall through here in the late afternoon that blew my wife and kid off their bicycles after a day painting the hull...

As for the binos, CD, you don't have a flotation question. You have a discipline question. If my kid did that, he'd be the subject of an immediate COB drill. Of course, he'd be wearing his PFD on deck, and of course, we'd retrieve him and the binos...eventually.

But here is my dilemma (sp??): I have kids. Kids like to drop (or throw) expensive things overboard. I think they do it to get a reaction from their old man. These binocs are supposed to float with the neck strap and not get water intrusion.
Make using the neck strap mandatory. It'll save you your binoculars and your cameras.
My Dad would have a freaking cow if we were caught using either without the strap around our neck.

Sailing a Catalina, it's understandable that Cruise-diddly is interested in ascertaining all possible sources of auxiliary flotation. His concern for his family is genuine though, his own flotation being assured by the gaseous substance between his ears.

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.

Addressed....

And by the way, please note the wind speed. That has to scare the fool out of a trimaran as they would be flying through the air upside down. Dosent bother us though. Even the kid was steering!!!

I eagerly await the pics of you throwing the stuff overboard.

The beer is empty (and it's not a real beer in the first place)..

Downwind like that in only 23 knots (true or apparent?) would be a blast in any mono or multihull..
