    An interesting exchange. The designer, Jacques Mertens, was a bit misinformed. But the torsion question is an interesting one. Do fast catamarans suffer from torsion problems?

    Not necessarily, but they certainly have higher torsional loading than monohulls.

    Sleds would be less than cats, but more than V hulls.
