    Hi there,

    I'm looking for good books on catamaran design, that discusses structural load cases, stability, seaworthiness, etc. S0mething like a PNA (principles of naval architecture) focussed on catamarans. Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Just read a lot...since there is no one go to book that covers everything you want. There are very good ones for each topic/subject..but..still lots of reading to do.
    If it were that easy....everyone would be doing it and an instant expert!

    Haha. Funny to see my thread again. I wonder if we could break down the procedure for catamaran design, and then invite the various NA's with experience in that area to contribute. It does seem to be an area where the general public would be served by some better/more comprehensive information.
