If one hull become puncture and fill up with water, would the second hull keep it afloat?

If float on one hull then would be not completely 180 but 90 angle?

I do not know how the multi-hulls are design. What I was thinking of is, if the boat is 180 then flooding one hull could brink to 90. Slowly flooding second while pumping out the first,could bring the boat upright. Pump out both hulls and clean up the inside mess. Would that work?

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

This thread makes my head hurt it's so ridiculous.

All boats can sink, number of hulls has nothing to do with it, only the conditions that are problematic for a mono vs. cat vs. tri.

I am sorry that your head hurt. Would you like Tylenol? There is a lot of difference between reading a books and having "hands on" experience. Just asking experienced sailors if would be possible to recover from unexpected disaster. Yes, all boats sink, just one goes down faster that another.

Dupek, the best course of action for you is to take lessons and learn how not to screw up. If your boat is sinking, you probably screwed up. Go take a basic sailing course, then you will get an idea of how boats work.

If you are deciding between a mono hull and a multi hull due to which one is more likely to sink, you probably should stay off the water before Darwin's law kicks in.
