"I've built another design catamaran, so I can only comment on the keel alignment on that build. But 12cm of difference from the front keel centerline to the rear keel centerline is WAY too much. You are pushing a wedge of water sideways in…"

"Is your mainsail the proper size?  If your mainsail is too big which puts your center of effort it too far aft of the center of lateral resistance you can have excessive weather helm.  Or maybe your foresail is too small to balance the…"

"Thanks Brad - I'm looking forward to following your progress. The Tikis sail well and I don't think you will regret making the switch."

"Hi Roger, The cats I built with daggerboards and big mainsail roaches went to weather well.  But you do pay a price in extra weight, cost, building time and more complicated systems to maintain. The trade off I have concluded is not worth it to…"

I know Boatsmith has one in Florida but would like to ind one closer to look at. I have built in the past a Richard Woods Romany and Wizard design so no stranger to boat building but would like to buy a ready made one rather than build again. I live close to the ICW so…See More
