Thank-you -- great suggestions, great information!

We'll put 'multihull demo days' on the list. My buddy and I will probably do a charter -- somewhere -- before then. I have to...

Sailingdog,

I am trying to study multihulls in terms of their intended design goal, looking at things like waterline beam to length ratios, etc. -- so I will look at the Reynolds as an example of...

Sailingdog,

I'd really appreciate a brief list of multihulls that demonstrate 'good design'.

Sailingdog,

Nautig and Chuckles, thanks for chiming in!

Sailingdog, "undercanvassed" was a poor choice of words on my part. I should have said 'reefed down', 'sailed conservatively' or something equivalent. ...

Thanks to everyone for such thoughtful replies!

Nolatom, I agree that 35' is a 'sorta' magic monohull number, thanks for the confirmation.

Jeff, Bayou, thanks for further clarifying! Stories about a 'favorite boat for a particular use' (could be an overall favorite) was exactly what I hoped to solicit.

It's fascinating to learn...

"Ya' Can't Lose" sailboat purchase

What would you consider to be a "can't lose" sailboat purchase?

sailingfool, hellosailor, thanks very much for your input!
