The Banstick Coup de Grace!

Good gravy I’m glad that’s finally over! That was freakin’ excruciating!

Imagine being handcuffed in a small room full of old, bitter, incontinent, neutered dogs that are given free reign, then told to not blame the dogs for the bites and fluids all over you. After all, “you shouldn’t have gone into the room – that I let you in”.

Multihull Popularity and Interesting Designs

Now, along with what appears to be a strong (and irrational) general bias against multihulls on SN (which we intend to change) – there is also a metric crap-ton of ignorance. Fortunately, there are a small handful of dudes over there who actually know what they are talking about…long-time cruisers who previously sailed monos and now sail multis.
