    I grew up sailing single hull boats on a small lake, never cared much for multi hulls. Congrats on the new one!

    Was on a sail boat one time in my life. On a lake in Texas on a windy day. All I heard the whole time was "coming over" and me ducking. Evinrude is my hero.

    I had to post it. I'm sorry. I never knew it was played on a 12 string electric guitar, so I like it a little now.




    Where's the head on that boat? Over the side?

    Oh, if you are looking for a name, my vote is "Chum line" or "Seagull". "Chum line" is what will be trailing behind from the non-boater passengers, and the second is what will be following the chumline having lunch. Nice boat. I hope the beverage holders are gimbal mounted...

    Since I'm getting old too fast, I figured I'd try a multi. They are fast and the wife likes fast...she gets bored in the mono.

    If I end up going back to a mono in a few years, that will be fine. If not, I'll probably step up to a multi with a small cabin for longer day trips, etc.

    My hero is Ian Farrier....

    The guy is now, after already revolutionizing the boat biz, starting a new operation building his new boat. It's the sailing equiv of the Woodstock Progress....:D

    I've taken last place in the Buzzards Bay Regatta repeatedly.
    Corsair's F-27 will always be my favorite Corsair.

    Prepare to get wet.

    I have seen similar craft travel at powerboat-like speeds down here on the Hudson. My father has wanted something like that for years. Does that one have a folding mechanism for trailering?

    I don't have folding - the corsairs and farriers do.
    I moor the boat, so I don't need it to fold - although if I enjoy the multi-hulls I'm going to probably get a farrier someday.

    I think the Corsair is the one my father has had his eye on. I have never sailed a multi-hull, but I have been passed by a few. I imagine it would be a gas!
