Can you confirm they actually made it out of the marina...
and yes, I know you're kidding... if you weren't, I'd have to come to Portugal and cut the shark off the bottom of your boat and bring it home as a trophy.
Did you go to OSU??? My dad's a Buckeye.
As for heeling, cruising catamarans are pushing it if they're heeling 10˚s, if you get them to do more, you will soon find out how hard they are to flip back over once they capsize.
Trimarans will heel about 15˚ when being sailed hard, but any more than that, you're again heading for a capsize. That said, it is pretty difficult to flip a cruising multihull.

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.
