      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

What is it? We'll tell you what it is - catamaran world domination! Seriously, has sailing ever seen such an explosion of these things? And while you are busy answering that, answer this: What is it?

Looks like Greg Young to me. Like a mini Earthling.

 

Agree!

These things are to be seen every where. Made popular by mostly fat older women that do not like to heel. No anchorage or body of water has been spared. Caribbean charter boats are almost all cats now. The charterers drive them around like trawlers since most of them are not real sailors. They take up twice the space at boatyards and marinas, and require twice the fossil based resources to build. Catamarans are ubiquitous. Bullshit marketing gone wild...not to mention they (cats) are generally unattractive vessels, but the Newbie consumers obviously think they are sexy. In another 20 years our shores will be littered with the abandoned hulks of these houseboats.

A "FAT Cat" with so much windage it doesn't even need sails living proof that odd people who mate with monkees can design multi-hulls.

Obviously some of these posts haven't taken the time to look at Schionnings specs. The standard version is 15.45 M LOA, 7.8M BOA ,a L to B ratio of 16.8:1 and 5000K disp and been clocked over 25kts. The cruising version I expect to be slower if it follows the same design differences between the 17 and the 17C with slightly more disp and less L to B ratio. Goes to show opinions are like AH's everyone's got one but nobody bothers to keep and open mind..........until that cat whizzes right by them. I've owned everything from a Macgreggor 36 , Stiletto 30 and an Offshore 40 and would love to have this cat!

There's nothing like the thrill of level sailing at 25knots.........................

New schionning 17c g force.

The 15 gforce Mojo and Chill Pill are realy cool and very fast boats. I doubt there is a cruising boat out there that would come close to these 2 in speed.

No masts. Funny bowsprit. I guess a kite boat.

Offshor sailor writes the essence: one great cat. Friends aboard their own homebuilt Shionning are 3/4 around the globe, just doing it. Wyzass comments are entertaining, but salutes to the Adventurers out there, cat or mono, just living our dreams.

Once the monohull lobotomy we are born with is reversed, the awakening sees all those with functioning grey matter eventually wake up:

 

Level fast sailing.

No wasted lead being sucked out of the planet to keep boats upright based on the most backward physics.

Overpriced marinas charge on length, so why park a triangle when a cleverer person will park a rectangle there and use THE WHOLE BERTH.

Chicks love lying on nets, not sticking heads through strangling lifelines with bruised butts.

 

Even the most diehard skiff/dinghy/leadmine champions are eventually moving to fast comfort for the fun years so they can pull the sabot mums off the lifelines while there is still life in them.

 

The Schionning above is one of many leaders in the game, and a couple about to be released from McConaghy China factory will lift the game even more.

 

Level and Fast.

This is obviously the latest G-Force Schionning design following on from the 16 metre cats 'Mojo' and 'Chill Pill' with the only difference being they have radically changed the cabin. It is such a shame that a highly esteemed design office such as Schionning Designs can not be original. This new cabin is an exact copy from the Stealth Design Cats now being built by Asia Catamarans. The Cabin design on the Stealths was created 8 years ago is the signature feature so really disappointing Schionning have stooped so low. Get original guys!
