Select monohulls and blue water catamarans bareboat or crewed, from 32' to 62'. and it also makes it fast. But just what is the story with speed and catamarans On the long haul from Ecuador to the Marquesas, some monohulls we knew had taken a frustrating 35 or 40 days. We did it in 23, but that was no record breaker We came in at the tail end of the group that left the Gal pagos together, mainly because Jon chose to keep us in lighter winds to have a more comfortable passage. Thinking about it,...

There's no shortage of good reasons to climb Ar are sight on the world's waters 20 years ago, catamarans are now ubiquitous. At boat shows, they elbow aside monohulls, clamoring for attention. And they get it. Their mere presence demands it. They' re big and brash, they offer bountiful creature comforts, and they revel Catamarans have evolved over the past three decades, and the public perception of the cruising cat has gone from oddball and dubious to mature and proven.

New Products By Mark Pillsbury

Anyone tired of pumping up an inflatable boat at the end of a voyage or dancing around a pumped-up one on deck might consider the nesting NN10-II dinghy from Niccolls Lite 2,450 power and rowing only 3,750 with sail rig . The two unsink-able pieces stow in a space measuring 5 feet 6 inches by 4 feet 5 inches and can be fitted together quickly, both in or out of the water. Assembled, the NN10-II is just over 10 feet long, with a 500-pound capacity. It can handle a 2- or 3-horse engine, and the optional sailing rig of main and jib carries 70 square feet of sail. The aft section weighs 65 pounds the forward is 45 pounds. Company owner Barry Niccolls says he originally designed the NN10 to nest on his Coronado 27. The boat made its debut about 10 years ago, but he recently updated it with a new non-skid-coated liner that overlaps the hull and creates a flange, making it easier to carry the boat and creating a watertight space between liner and hull that adds to the boat's foam flotation....

Sailor

Even tucked into a well-known hurricane hole, it takes guts and savvy to ride out a real blow, so don't take it lightly. My hands were shaking when I had to power ahead ever so carefully into 65-knot winds I had to keep our 50-pound storm anchor from dragging, but at the same time, I couldn't unset it. Boats on both sides of me lost their engines due to silt stirred up in the anchorage, and they quickly piled up on the rocky shore. I prayed that our sea strainers wouldn't clog as well. In a...

Seamanship By Captain Patricia Miller Rains

As with the North Atlantic, the eastern Pacific plays host each fall to its own brand of ferocious ocean storms My husband, Captain John E. Rains, and I are former cruisers who had the good fortune to turn our passion for adventure into the vocation of yacht delivery. During the past 25 years, we've dodged lots of hurricanes in the Atlantic and Pacific because our primary yacht-delivery route takes us back and forth from the East Coast of the United States to the West Coast via the Panama...

More Righting Moment Means Less Heel

Wind force on the sails causes a sailboat to heel. Resistance to heeling, called righting moment RM , results from the lateral movement of the boat's center of buoyancy away from the center of gravity CG . To compare the heeling behavior of a catamaran versus a monohull, consider a 45-foot mono as having similar accommodations to those of a 40-foot cruising cat. The mono displaces 30,000 pounds, and the cat displaces 18,500 pounds. Each has about 950 square feet of sail area. The moment of...

Various classic one-design classes, antique workboats, and modern iterations of classic designs. While the fleet drew heavily from Ireland, entries also came from Britain and other countries in Europe. Wayward, the largest boat in the fleet, appeared at the America's Cup Jubilee at Cowes, England, in 2001 and was purchased last year by yacht broker Ian Kirkwood after a major refit in Hamble, England. Her crew of 15 to 17 was by far the largest in a fleet dominated by singlehanders, duos, and...

Space, safety, and speedy passages delight this cruising family Those of us who sail catamarans don't have to do a lot of proselytizing. We like our boats, and we know why we like them. I figure every boat owner does. But when our cruising friends Scott and Sonia Crawshaw told us they were going to sell their beautiful monohull, Peregrinata, and look for a catamaran on which to cruise, I was shocked.
