    Affordable American Made Catmarans

    Call Dick at Maine Cat, I think some of his 41s have been used in charter. He may know number of pax. Already open bridgedeck, so pull up the eisenglas and you are good to go. Would be surprised if you didn't need something much bigger for 50 though.

    Charter in Grenada

    We paid Dream Yacht Charter a modest sum (don't remember the total $, but better than the pain and time of 2 days upwind) and they delivered the boat to St Vincent and we did a one-way charter and dropped it off in Grenada. I mostly charter cats and like Dream Yacht as many of their boats have code-0s, nothing worse than trying to surf downwind w/ a small upwind headsail. Not sure if any of the mono charters come w/ downwind sails, but something to look at if you actually want to sail.

    Buying a new sailing home

    Switch 51, they are asking $495, jump on it fast, they don't come to the market often.

    Buying a new sailing home

    Search for Veeger on the forum, he just brought home a new Maine Cat 38, nothing like a condomaran, daggers, light weight, think he said he could do 35-40 AWA depending on sea state and wind speed. surfs in the mid teens. Very livable. They just announced the MC-38-LS version for "Less Stuff", saves another 600 lbs off an already light boat. Veeger lived aboard an MC-41 for a number of years so can tell you about relative livability.

    EndeavorCat 30 vs Gemini 30?

    Also check out the Maine Cat 30,, if you want more performance probably easier to turbo charge than the Gemini or Endeavor.

    She swims! (Poor man's Gunboat)

    A thing of beauty indeed ! Think I might get one
  7. Just stumbled across this from de Villiers on FB, I sailed her big sister, 62' Elcie from Tonga to Fiji 3 years ago, great sailing boat. If he can hit his numbers, his SA/D is between the Catana 47 Carbon and the Outremer 4x, not bad for a low maintenance, go anywhere, alloy boat.

    New Wheel: Carbonautica GFC?

    Did you get one? What did it cost? Find any alternatives? Seems like many new boats have a similar looking wheel, hard to believe they are all springing for real carbon. Looking at the GFC for my boat.
