    Soma I suspect you have more time in cats than I ever will, but with all due respect, it’s not terribly hard to pitchpole a cat.

    Buffing/Cleaning Catamaran Hulls

    Wet sand for heavy oxidation, but only if you have to. Follow that with buffing and wax. I agree, you won’t see any speed diff on a cat with wax. Also, when buffing, you can use wool on gel coat, but use waffle pads on paint. I use Starbrite and the Collinite. Will try ceramic next.

    Here we are this March on the icebreaker Sampo out of Kemi, Finland. Built in 1960 and still going strong.

    girls run aground in WA State ....

    I’ll say this for them, they’ve got the main stowed well, considering. I’m pretty sure ours doesn’t ever look that good after a Wednesday night race with six beers helping.

    You will be happy where you decide to be happy.

    Their plan was to relocate as the eye passed over. Wtf. Betting on exactly where the eye will be is a very bad bet. Even if it hits you dead on, you don't have long. Amazing experience on dry land, though.

    Do you know why Scotsmen wear kilts? Because sheep can hear a zipper.

    There's a helicopter on the way to Mars right now. Talk to those people. I'm sure they've figured out the air density thing. At least, as long as the people who whacked the Mars Climate Orbiter straight into Mars at a few thousand mph, after using the wrong unit measure, aren't involved.

    I think I would enjoy being part of a rational society that had its shit together, lockdown or no.

    To Foil or not to Foil, that is the question

    I removed the existing single blocks and installed double blocks in the same location. On my boat, it is the aft most bungee, and runs back and forth 5 times between the hulls, right about where the trap lines are.

    Thank you Simon; that makes sense.
