Re: has anyone made a homemade catamaran and cross a ocean yet?

Well that's cool. So he's still working on it? Last I heard he'd pretty much given up and was going to sell.

Good on him for sticking with it.

Re: Hunter loses rudder

That's the best video I've seen on the technique. The center of the boat for the lines. That makes perfect sense.

Re: Interior space Catalina27 vs Alberg30

Well, I totally agree with Patrick.

We had a double reefed main (all the reefs we had) - and had it opened up as much as possible to spill wind. Even so, the mast was pumping like a mofo. It was...

Re: nelson Marek 45 owners Any out there?

Hey bern, I can't help you on your question - but I can tell you I'm envious. I bought a 1989 Hunter 40. And one of the reasons is that it resembles the NM 45 in many ways, including an after...

Re: How do you feel about catamarans?
