I like this Texan.        

I was surprised I don't know this guy. I bet money I know somebody who knows him. LOL. Thank you!

You are welcome, Eddie. Check that dude out, if you can. He is having some marital problems but he seems like a straight shooter. Who knows, he may become a bona-fide Doomstead Diner. He has a following on U-tube of about 3,500 subscribers. I think he could use some help from a fellow Texan, even if it's just moral support.

RE, you may want to give him a holler too.  ;)

The problem with multi-hull boats is they are not self-righting.  So if you get rolled over or pitch poled, you are seriously **** and SOL.  If the trimaran folds, you can right it if the seas calm, but you cannot right a flipped cat in any way. Trimarans have the serious problem of a lack of room in the main cabin, not a great living space in general.

I experienced two flying jibes.  One not too bad on a small daysailer boat, it only pulled out a couple of cleats.  The other one worse, the boom got ripped off the mast on a 32 footer.  Very ugly, and expensive repairs for dad the pigman.


I hear ya, RE, but I want to tell you about something I saw that you will find hard to believe. I certainly found it hard to believe. I was at the beach watching a dude sailing a Hobie cat. Of course that's a bit small for a catamaran but it IS a catamaran. Well, it FLIPPED! And the dude, WAY out over 200 yards away from the beach, stood on a pontoon and UNFLIPPED IT!.  :o  The mast came out of the water. After some scurrying around, he was sailing again. That guy knew his stuff!

A Hobie Cat in action

Of course you can't do that with a full sized catamaran but I like em' anyway!  ;D

For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
