    I was going to buy or build a schioning, I looked very hard at all boats of catamarans in 40 foot size.

    Im glad I didnt, although I really like the design.

    Check out the old thread 'who can build me a power cat in asia"

    Eh Butch. You also just using their downwind technique then. Trade winds can be bloody boring.

    And to think they could have gone around the world, what... 100 days is it ?


    Geezzz Frosty, just think about that huge deck you would have to sweep... and the distance you'd have to walk to the fridge for beer. No man, you guys should stick to mono's.

    I'm worried about Frosty's bridgedeck clearance. The seawind's seems ok though.

    Once you've had a cat , bridge deck clearance becomes very important, I understand your concern but I think at a guess it is 80/90cm.

    Mine is identical to the picy but no teak aft deck (too heavy) and no built in bridge, I like to keep the wind in my hair.
