This is not going to get any easier until the Multihull Association(in whatever form that takes) gets off the ground and we are able to remove the terms "catamaran" and "trimaran" and replace them with "performance multihull" or similar.

  10. You two are so cute quote name="Peter Hackett" post="5346317" timestamp="1465380287"] If you can tow a Jayco around Australia you can tow a boat to Wangi.I could never compare to you Pete, you tow with a Jeep which is illegal (and unlikely to go anywhere) other than in South Aus.
  11. For fucks sake He runs a sailing website!!!! Kinda expected. Would you have been slobbering all over speedboat if you had have had access? Do you think the boats been successful since it's launch in 2008? Cool as it is
