    Sailing has been my dream for as long I can remember. Currently an ultrarunner, backpacker, ice and rock climber. Technical diving been my hobby for little more than a decade before I got bored doing it... I love reading, learning about everything !!
  1. Can the companionway hatch on a Corsair F28 or F31 can withstand boarding seas in the cockpit or it isnt water tight at all ?
  2. Hey !! Thanks SeaGul, I was looking for that article but coulnt find it :-p
  3. I have no issues fidding with stuff and doing mecanic on my boat nor I have any problem putting 5k every year on it. The issue I found with monohull is givin' 5k to the marina every year. I call that throwin money out the window. That, I have issue with ! I studied mechanic when I was young and been doing carpentry for years. Working with my hands is no problem.

Of course, I will have to do it gradually and will wait a couple years at least to get to know the boat. The gulf of St-Lawrence is a good playground I thi
  6. Hello sailors !! I'm fairly new to sailing and especially to multihull so be kind in your answer and critics please. And bare with my french canadian english loll I'm looking foward to buy my first sailboat and because of where I live(not on or close to a coast) I found out that trailerable trimaran might be my best bet. Im not looking for a roomy boat. My wife and I are, backpacker, ultrarunner, so we are use to deal with the bare minimum. I am though looking for a boat able to take 15-20ft waves. The St. Lawrence can be bitter sometimes. Im just wondering if a f28 or f31 can make i
