Finally a good reason to own a multihull. Reports stated that all the multis were pulled up onto the beach to weather the storm and were re-floated after.

Hey, hey, hey, easy now. I didn't say I wanted one! Its just the only good justification for owning one I've heard yet. :D

I like my boats to look like... well, boats.

Saw those vids over at SA.... what blew me away was the all those guys in the water trying to hold a 12,000 lb boat off the beach in those breaking waves... What where they thinking? No news of anyone being hurt but sure could have been.

Can you say "lee shore?"

Whew.

It is an interesting justification. The best thing about a multi is you can use it to ride out a storm on land. Sad. Very sad.

Fast - no kidding on the guys in the water trying to push the boats back into the waves. That's a lot of hope. At some point, you just have to say Phuket.

There is absolutely nothing worse though than seeing a beautiful yacht sinking into the sand.

Of course, this is coming from someone descended from European stock... In the Pacific, traditional boats look a lot like mine and yours would be missing major bits... Sad to see how Eurocentric people can be...
