Jealousy is not becoming in sailors. You all have 'hull' envy

My Gemini has only 18 inches of clearance at the stern directly under the cockpit. I occasionally get a slam because of the chop on the bay - the cockpit drains face aft so when I get a following wave it has been known to send a geyser of water up through the drain into the cockpit, not a ball busters, but certainly a ball washer.

The good news is, I seldom get a following wave because of course the boat is not constrained by that big lead mine you sink boats carry around - I'm faster than the waves ya'll sail through.

I don't have lead mine envy or heeling envy - and for the last time (I hope) a trimaran only has one hull. One hull, two ama's (or training wheels).

Again I have to remind chuckles to take his dementia meds... Amas are hulls.

See this definition:

Quote:
A hull is the body of a ship or boat. It is a central concept in floating vessels as it provides the buoyancy that keeps the vessel from sinking.
or this definition:

Quote:
the frame or body of a ship or boat exclusive of masts, yards, sails, and rigging

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.

Actually, you must have hull envy... I've got three hulls, and you claim that monohullers have hull envy cause they only have one and you have two...

My guess would be the white one is a Lagoon 420. The big one looks to be a Sunreef 62.
