It's cold outside, so lets talk about boats

I'd like one of these. :D

I have a question though, for which I don't know the answer. Why does a catamaran not roll into a turn like a mono hull and as this Nauti-Craft is a cat, why doesn't it do the same or is the answer obvious and I'm missing it completely?

umm. too many moving parts exposed to the elements for me.

How would you dry stack that :D

In the turns it looks like the pontoons stay level but the deck roles

BUT in that video the other catamaran did role and to be honest looked as though they had to quickly back off the power or that would have rolled over

Yeah, that was the scary bit, fixed hull cats seem to negative roll into a turn rather than positive roll like a mono hull.

Mind you, I have to say if there were Hunton pace boats following, they wouldn't have made half as much fuss of those waves, trouble is they would have made the suspension boat look bumpy. :mrgreen:
