Re: Multihull Popularity and Interesting Designs

Hey guys - how does an Antares 44 cat pull down around twice the amount of an FP Helia 44 for the same length and year?

Re: Multihull Popularity and Interesting Designs

In a tornado.

The same video shows a large sunken trawler as well. The most important lesson here was that this guy seemed to not know what he was doing and made LOTS of mistakes anchoring and even starting his engine. That's about it. He was lucky the funnel didn't get close enough to him to experience the same fate.

How are these examples relevant to this thread?

Re: Multihull Popularity and Interesting Designs

I don't see why it isn't relevant. The OP mentioned safety and seaworthiness in the first post. I thought we were trying to have a balanced discussion. If one person shows a vid of a cruising cat surfing at 27 knots to show seaworthiness, why isn't it reasonable to show the other side of the coin. Or, in this case, the other side of the boat

I would love to have a balanced discussion. I think the difference in my mind is that, as I said above, I don't expect ANY boat to be "safe" in a hurricane or a tornado strike. Those situations are far beyond the envelope for cruising.

On the other hand, I do think that getting hit by an F8 or F9 is relatively likely if you're out cruising - and knowing how to control the boat in those conditions is what I'm personally most interested in from the multi sailors around here.

Controlling the boat in a tornado doesn't have much value or relevance to me in this kind of learning. So I don't really go around looking for those videos, etc. Anyway, I just thought you guys had already created a thread specifically for multi capsizes. But this ain't my thread so knock yourself out.

I took another look. There's a Triton controller at the helm but I don't see one at the nav table. And by the comments, it seems there were only the 3 people aboard.

So it looks kinda like Gilligan was "steering". In any case, I certainly wouldn't want to STEER in those conditions and speeds with a freakin' AP control.

Re: Multihull Popularity and Interesting Designs

Some of the trimarans appear to be relatively fast. Perhaps with good weather routing / planning most of the storms can be avoided. Rapido tris look pretty fast, though they sure do cost a pretty penny.

Why not, jog controls aren't bad to steer with. Wear a remote on a lanyard around your neck, or stuff it in your pocket. Don't know if the folks in your vid had a remote, but they are pretty common.

They look like this. Auto does the heavy lifting and you jog or dodge as necessary, the system automatically reverts to auto pilot after you have made your alteration.
