Re: Oyster is closing its doors

Not happening in California. Three local marinas rebuilt in the last 5 years, and none of them have "double berth" sizes for multis. They all did add more 50' slips though.

Re: Oyster is closing its doors

I like catamarans - they do many things nicely, especially sailing downwind with a spinnaker to the hulls - neat trick.

I think they are great for places like the caribbean, but I wouldn't want to cross an ocean in one. If they capsize, it is all over. Lucky for this crew they were rescued.

Re: Oyster is closing its doors

Why do you do this? It is a silly argument - cherry picked and without statistical support. Should I post all the people who have died when their mono's sank mid-ocean? Is that a valid argument? It obviously wasn't game over for the people in your link because they are alive. That isn't true for all of those dangerous monos that should be only in the Caribbean - right?

So, you are saying that there is a catamaran that will self-right like a mono?

Never heard of one, but I am all ears...........

Sigh. Yours is the weakest and oldest rhetoric going, and I will let you alone with it.

Re: Oyster is closing its doors

In other words, I am correct. If a catamaran gets flipped, it will not self-right like a monohull does.

The catamaran in the video is an Atlantic 57 - considered a very safe cruising catamaran with a beam of 28'.

It obviously got flipped, and was unable to self-right. If a monohull had been hit the same way, it would have rolled back upright.
That is the reason I would not choose one for crossing oceans - although they are great for sailing around the caribbean.

Really?

This one didn't...



...which is one of the big reasons this thread exists in the first place.

Your faith seems to be as misplaced as your arguments. (Are you clear on the SLV boat thing yet?)

Actually, yes I am.

Researched it a bit more, and as it turns out, they were given a "substantial" discount on the price, and Outremer financed the rest for them payable out of their youtube proceeds. So yes, it is a paid endorsement. Maybe you are the one who is confused about it? You seem to think they weren't compensated....

Okay, Lazer. I'll have to bow out of acknowledging your posts again. I tried. I'm always willing to give a person the benefit of the doubt if they legitimately want to discuss something. But if you keep shifting positions just to argue (like some others around here) - it's just not worth the trouble. My time is more valuable than that.

What you're saying now is exactly what several above corrected you on - including me - and exactly NOT what you said in the beginning. So at least you've been corrected and educated. That's worth something.

LaterLazer.
