Great! Take SanderO, Register, TakeFive, Outbound, Chef, etc with you as none of you all have added to the discussion of multihulls but have tried to bait Smackdaddy into another reason to ban him! You all have not offered anything worth reading regarding the topic of the OP regarding anything associated with the thread.

Rant over!

I have no interest in banning Daddy. I also have no interest in viewing vlogs of multis or monos... nor do I have an interest in baiting him regardless of whether or not I like his posts. He has every right to post as long as his posts meet the board rules.

I have no experience with cats... and no interest in buying one for multiple reasons. I am intellectually interested in attributes of all boat designs as solutions to different problems, needs, conditions and so on.

I try not to get involved but Iím curious why the moderator being the OP of this thread isnít moderating..there have been a few comments that have been very close if not crossed the line of internet style bullying... Letís keep this thread on track as Iím trying to learn something about catamarans.. Thanks,

I'm curious about the cruising multi owners we have posting in the thread thus far. By my count, I've got the following...

colemj
smj
dotdun

Then on the beachcat owner side I've got...

arcb
myownbadself

Anyone else I've overlooked?

I would have been added to this list this summer upon the delivery of our FP 40, but Smack you know the story... Hopefully we may again get the catamaran fever once more when 'bodies' heal... but it doesn't mean we can't enjoy a thread about multihulls and I know you wanted me to start this thread and glad the moderator stepped in.

Yeah, I know the story and really hope things come back around for you guys on that. I don't see why you shouldn't be included on that list too - even if it's a bit early. And count me jealous on that FP40!

Thank you for trying to get everyone back on topic. I too am trying to learn about multi's and comparing to mono's since I am preparing for my first cruising boat purchase. I plan to live aboard so need to make a good decision up front.

Smack... Like I mentioned earlier take a tour at the boat show in your area or take a trip to the Miami Boat Show, you'll be impressed on the Lucia 40 model quality for the price it's going for... the Helia 44 was very nice as well but didn't offer more than the Lucia model. For a cruising couple the Lucia is really all you need at least that is what we came away with.

I see what you mean about the Lucia vs the Helia. I really like the open layout of the Lucia...



It's a great looking boat and seems to be just the right size for me. It's great looking at these new models because they will probably be the used boats I'll be in the market for in 3-4 years.
