Catamaran Sailing – Moving On to Our Looping forty eight





We thought transferring from a 38’ monohull to a 48’ catamaran would be a breeze looking at how a great deal bigger the catamaran was. We were mistaken…

  2. Hello, May I suggest you research 'heaving to' on the net… it looks tome you are not using the headsail and if you do it without headsail, then when the wind will be stronger, the boat will move faster forward, and will turn into the wind, so your main sail will get damaged, your boat will be out of control… the use of the headsail will act as a break, allowing the boat to remain stable. What you did here in light breeze will not work in strong winds.

  4. Just love it, so so happy for you two, you will thrive on this cat, more room, much safer for Ryan & you to Nicole, being at the stern & so close to the Galley, just take a seat when she gets some speed up & careful when tacking, you know all this how to stuff any way, it’s just a much faster ride… enjoy & make your mistakes slowly as my hubby always says when sailing, mostly whilst mooring, but he has raced & sailed cats and monohulls for 50 + years… …I’m going to watch this episode again! Love 💕 the commentary, so lively & fun….

  5. While heaving to: "I'm blown away", he says. Yes, literally.

  6. COG in magnetic mode is a weird concept, to me. (I'm seeing it on the B&G chart plotter)

  7. I’ve always told people that if you can sail a hobie 16, you can sail a big cat, things come so much slower on a big cat… you two are awesome, I love the banter you two have, you remind me of me and my bride.

  8. Are you guys thinking of getting a complete cockpit enclosure for weather days?

  9. Since you now have a wood/epoxy boat, you should be aware of several problems. Epoxy is very UV sensitive and will deteriorate quickly. Keeping paint over the epoxy is necessary. Gougeon brothers have a very good book on wood/epoxy construction and maintenance. Keeping salt water out of the wood will keep the strength of the wood up. One problem with builders is not putting a epoxy barrier between the through bolt or screw and the hole sides. The problem is easy to fix. Wax the bolt/screw with paste wax, fill the hole with epoxy and place the fastener. The wax makes is easy to remove the fastener later if necessary. Some people even go as far as drilling the hole oversize , filling the hole with epoxy/flox mixture. After hardening the hole is then drilled to the correct size. Boatworkstoday and Saillife are good Youtube channels on wood/composite construction.

    If you need any advice on epoxy/wood construction, I have considerable experience with the materials and would be willing to answer any questions. [email protected]bak.rr.com

  23. Congratulations !
    Moving into your new home must be very energizing and fun, despite the heaps of extra work, and learning new "quirks" that each individual craft slowly reveals in different sea-states.

    Although the wallop on the forehead must have been painful, the skin will heal quickly. The greater problem maybe the unseen 'whiplash injury' to the cervical spine as the head is forced back unexpectedly. I hope you find a suitable avoidance strategy. A jigsaw might be handy to carve a higher head-space in emergencies, lol!
