"Congratulations on your decision, Gary. The Woods catamarans look like excellent boats. If I weren't so hooked on Wharrams, I might be considering the Eagle myself - it looks very promising. "

"Will do Paul, but it will be while before it's finished.  I lost a lot of this year's summer due to other stuff going on, but I'll get there eventually...  ☺"

"I'm also going the two boat route. I really love my Tiki 26, beautiful really capable boat, but trailer sailer it ain't.  Trailer to sailing away about two days!  I've got lots of electrics etc and the cockpit is a big lump…"

"I'd love to hear from someone who uses ratcheting straps instead of lashings to see how long they take. I'll start fishing through the photos and see who has them. Thanks, everyone!"

"I have 4 beams as you can see, once you get started and have a system sorted it should take you no more than 2 hours. Just make sure you use a no stretch braid. That said I have put this boat together and pulled it apart 3 times now. My mast is…"
