Re: CNN on Rogue Waves

Again. I will repost my experiences regarding rogue waves. I have read quite a bit about the sat info on rogue waves, which I find very interesting, but often unverifiable, beyond a momentary spike....

Re: CNN on Rogue Waves

I think the movie "White Squall" documented monster waves pretty well. Now that satellites scan the earth, they have pinpointed several locations where these monster waves are common.

Re: CNN on Rogue Waves

If I remember correctly, for a long time those who didn't go to sea were skeptical when those who did reported giant waves. I believe I read somewhere that it wasn't until after satellite images...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Why the sarcastic response?

First, I apologize. Some post simple questions simply to generate noise. If you are simply curious, I was wrong. However, philisophically, there is a LOT of postings on...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

If I could have found one I liked, that I could have afforded, I would be in one right now. I like them.

I think in ten years, it will be a lot easier to find a good used one. I don't know that...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

They most often devolve into an argument when a cat owner chimes in and calls monohull assertions, crap.

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

I can't stand a "leaner."

First, well, they LEAN. I find it exceptionally uncomfortable that when the monohull is on its best performance, I am suffering from cricked knees trying to find some...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

We've chartered them, never owned one so take this with a grain of sea salt. Also, I'm assuming you mean typical cruising cats, not beach cats, etc.

Good: Lots of room. 2 couples, each get...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

There are some facts and even more personal preferences that separate the two. From my perspective (mix of fact and subjective), a mono is simply more versatile overall. I say monos are more...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

these are all pretty biased views written from the point of cat-lovers... ;)
there was one thing in all of them:

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Sailed a small (23') French cat the other day, for the first time. I understand the attraction: it was fast, pointed at least reasonably well (35 or better AWA, no instruments so I couldn't tell...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

I think the main problem with catamarans is that they are, almost without exception, ugly.
My wife would probably love one, she doesn't like heeling. The space would be nice. Their ability to go...

I'm no expert on catamarans and have sailed only a few. One thing I noticed early on and then actually started looking for was the location of the stays. Most of the port and starboard stays are...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Once they are full of cruising gear they dont point up wind . They are great when you get any where as far as space is concerned, they need huge anchoring gear as they try and sail the anchor out and...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Look up Bumfuzzle and multi versus mono. He wrote a great article comparing the two.

As for this boat - it looks like a nightmare. But it's pretty cheap. If you don't give a damn and just want to...

In the end, the decision is your to make. But what a lot of us like to do here is to ensure that you don't make a bad decision, or one that will scare you off from sailing. A 45' is a BIG boat. ...

Re: Looking for a Sailing teacher

Check for sailing schools in your area. They would be happy to provide you with individualized training. I'm sure you'll be able to negotiate a rate that is fair for you and the trainer.
