  1. Other Brands
    I would like to have a fast sailboat, with a lot of above-deck living-space, that rides flat. I think I want a cat or symetric hull tri. I'd also like to be able to "beach" it and unload cargo, like an LST (Landing Ship Tank). I don't want to spend 5 years building it. My idea is to take an...
  2. Living Aboard
    Thought I’d post this in the live aboard section as I might receive a smidgeon more empathy. After cruising Florida’s Southeast coast on and off for two years on our Tartan 31 my wife and I are now looking at living aboard full time. Many of the “important” items that were at the top of our list...

  5. Learning to Sail
    In the frame of my program "Sailing4Youth, Cross Cultural Team Building By Sailing" there will be a workshop made to introduce among other things, the most important parts of a boat/catamaran. I searched the internet but always ended up with information about buying a boat or trailer a boat...

  7. Chartering
    Hello, SEEKING BAREBOAT CHARTER Can anyone direct me to a source of 50ft catamarans in or around Los Angels CA or Newport Beach for bareboat chartering? I have my ASA certs up to big boat catamarans and have sailed 46 monohulls for multiple day trips many times. I have been sailing a newer...
  8. Cruising & Liveaboard Forum
    Hello world! First post. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. My wife and I are tech professionals in SF and beginning to plan a liveaboard year at some point down the road (likely within the next couple of years). We're not in a rush to buy, but we are starting to do our homework. I've...
  9. Gear & Maintenance
    Any advice with this fiberglass hull repair would be MUCH appreciated! My Prindle 16 began sinking last time we took her out! One of the hulls was taking on water...very quickly. Fortunately we made it back to shore safely. After this experience, I inspected the boat and found that a repair is...
  10. Learning to Sail
    I purchased and sail a Prindle 16 catamaran. The Prindle comes with a boom. Although, this boom mounted off the mast is dangerous when it swings around during a tack. Since the sail has battens in it to keep the sail stiff, can I sail without the boom? In this case I would attached the block and...
  11. Learning to Sail
    I have been doing a lot of research but I cannot find out where the best place for me to get my RYA yachtmaster ocean (or equivalent). Things I want out of my course: 1) Lots of other students on the boat to learn with 2) Inexpensive courses even if it means fast track 3) Preferably a...
  12. Cruising & Liveaboard Forum
    Hi, We are thinking of sailing the big loop next year with our Lagoon 380 catamaran. We are aware of the height-restrictions, and will have the mast to take down. However on all reports and photos, I only see relative small boats (mainly motorboats). My question is: Can you sail/motor the...

  14. Cruising & Liveaboard Forum
    Hey guys, I am super new to sailing and am looking to dive right into the liveaboard lifestyle. I am looking at getting a cat potentially a gemini 105 as my first liveaboard. First problem is that I am young 23 years old and will need to finance. I have looked at Essex for financing, does anyone...
  15. Cruising & Liveaboard Forum
    Hello everyone. My brother has multiple sclerosis, and is confined to a wheelchair. We are both avid sailors. He has been sailing a Martin 16 in Toronto, but we want to look into a catamaran which could be made wheelchair accessible. We would need a catamaran with a fairly large salon, and where...

  19. General Discussion (sailing related)
    I just read "A Sail of Two Idiots" a howto book written by Renee Petrillo about what she learned on a catamaran. In the boat she and her husband both crew on monohulls, but say they prefer catamaran. Hopefully I am not starting a war... but I am wondering if there are people sailed one than the...
