Grrr.... You really shouldn't talk... you're the guy who blows up grills to finish cooking the food... and craps his pants because he dropped a wrench in the bilge...









PS... CD is okay in my book if anyone thinks he and I are being serious... Even if he does have a Catalina fetish and sails a third of a boat...

Tntonboard Cruising dad - Thanks for the food for thought. It'll take awhile to digest it but I'm sure it will create some good discussion amongst my family. Be careful what you ask for - lot's of questions coming your way.

I fully agree... PFD when single handing, and tether and harness most times too. Same about the gloves..

sailingdog Yes, I would agree that finding space for a larger cat can be a challenge... However, the do just fine on moorings. And the smaller ones I mentioned actually will fit into many slips, as they have a beam of only 14'.

I find myself usually thinking rather uncivilly "ooh, more for me!". Even in a monohull, you will often be over 20 degrees or so, but it's a fairly constant and not particularly abrupt motion unless you are on a close-haul. Then you can just spill some main or put on a hat.

camaraderie vermilli...yeah...but I don't think he is in the market for a million dollar catamaran! Probably a useful guy to talk to though!

vermilli There is a local (Annapolis) Couple cruising the world in a catamaran with their two daughters. They have a website www.zialater.com.

Joe has written a number of artices that will help you and you can contact them directly.
