What We Believe of Catamarans — Sailing Uma [Action 89]





I experience like the only way you would believe what I am talking about in the description, is by seeing the video clip. In this episode we:
one. Witnessed our boat remaining higher-jacked
two. Sailed on a one/two million greenback catamaran
3. Received turned down when entering St Lucia

  7. I can truthfully say you two make a remarkable and unforgettable couple. I love watching every video. Many thumbs up on using electric motor for getting to and from land. All boats will have electric in the near future. They will be following you.

  12. Being over 60, it is the only type of boat I would consider to live aboard !

  13. Nice Macguyver work with the grille!

    Cats are nice and fast but everything seemed to cost 3x as much. The price you pay for flat out speed (PUN)!

    (well some are fast)

  14. I have seen this happen numerous time thru the islands buy instead of moving the boat they usually cut the lines and loot the boat several days later after it washes up somewhere else. What u seen was a crime in the making and if the other cruisers were not looking your line would have been cut. 12 yrs ago they cut a line on a 44 cheoy Lee while the owner went to shore to buy groceries and left his wife and baby were sleeping
    On the boat . The father was able to come back and was able to catch up to the boat . Wife and baby was still asleep.

  15. Hi Guys. When someone tries moving your boat like that, it's always good to notify the relevant authorities in the area. It's possible the fishermen were genuinely ignorant that what they were doing amounted to piracy and is highly illegal in just about any country, but it's also possible that the authorities don't know this is going on & don't want people leaving in a huff, so give them chance to sort it out their way, even though you still go storming off.
    Cats are great until you get the 50% surcharge on the marina bill (norm for Europe), or have to try and get into a marina berth shorthanded in strong conditions. A bit nailbiting.
    How gorgeous is Thais? We've all seen some amazing ladies on sailing channels on YT, Kika not least :-), but wow…! Any chance of hearing her opinion on the sailing life? I have Brazilian friends in London, and initially my friends wife wouldn't speak because she felt her English was too bad. The when I spoke to here in my atrocious Portuguese (not even Brazilian!) she almost broke a rib laughing a relented. She had more intelligent things to say than the rest of us put together, and her English wasn't as poor as she thought. So speak up girl!

  16. Catamarans certainly serve a purpose and have many massive advantages. But the disadvantages… shees. First and probably least, they are so ugly that it makes my eyes water. They all have horrid tacky interiors and all kinds of useless junk to fill that space.. Twice the upkeep, at best mediocre upwind performance… But most importantly: "Sailing without heeling is like having sex without sweating. It might be tidy but it certainly ain't good."

  18. Serious issue – locals moving your boat. Did you make a report to Noonsite, at least? Cheers.

  19. Wow! Why did they deny you entry?! That sucks!

  20. Great video. My wife and I love our cat, but then again we're in our mid-50's so maybe that explains it. 😉 Like others, we chartered an Open 40 and weren't terribly impressed with build quality or layout. That's why we ended up with a Seawind!

  21. Nice …. ;~D>> …. Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  22. They were probably stealing your boat. Yacht theft is still a problem in many places around the world, and it is not hard to accomplish.

  23. Coming from Hobie sailing I like catamarans, of course. Ok, this here was not a Hobie but a slight bit larger – but I think for cruising these boats are not too bad at all. Lots of space and nice to sail if you have mostly downwind course. For all other purposes I like monohulls.

  24. Glad you guys and uma are ok. I replied to hindu1234 on this thread about another perspective. Not a biggie if you don't read it. I was very intrigued by your perspective on cats. I checked out a few monos and a couple of cats but haven't sailed any of the latter. I like the observation re: the quality doesn't match the price. I was cracking up watching the video because I was thinking to myself, tell us how you really feel. I am neither young nor 60 but I am a newbie to sailing. There is definitely something to be said about a feel vs a comfort. I think the most important thing is to get out to sail. I just got rid of one couch, one more to go. I can't wait. Safe travels you guys!

  25. My husband live on a 36 foot Tashiba. It is a mono hull and quite comfortable. And by the way I am 58. Love your videos

  26. My advice to people wanting a Cat is to sail on one first.  My wife and I personally didn't like their motion.  They move through the water differently than a monohull.  It is also harder to find a haul out facility if you have an emergency repair to be made. On the other hand, they are floating castles!

  27. Hahahaha, screw that. They can ask for you to move, but someone would have had an oar slapped upside their head if that happened here. Oh boy did I LOL about not being able to light the stove. Had the exact same issue the first time I weekended on my boat. Totally prepared, get everything out and about to light the stove and it dawned on me……"Well f@ck" Thumbs up for Muana as well! 🙂

  28. Poor sailing Mischief. They lost their boat.

  29. Loved the karaoke, that was crazy with them taking your anchor and trying to tow your boat off! I learned on a Hobie Cat in the early 70's nothing like it to sharpen your skills, I now own a mono hull and I'm 60+

  30. I sailed a cat from Moreton Bay to Bundaberg and l was glad to go back home to my mono…
    Static vs. dynamic stability is basic physics and so the cat's only stable point is upside down.
    Touching one's boat? Hmmm…Bugger off morons!

  31. Still scares me that you guys don't have a safety rail on the port or starboard side of Uma.

  32. Wrong catamaran to judge cats by. Fast cats are a totally different story. I grew up racing monohulls and cruising monohulls regularly. Now in my early thirties I swear by cats. Currently I have an Ericson 35' MKII but will be moving to a fast cat very soon and do not intend on going back. Specifically the Outremer 4x, this will be my home so I have no issue spending what it will cost. Cruising @ 20+ knots is something only a catamaran can realistically attain without being thrown across the boat. I understand the pull of monohulls, especially to new sailors like yourselves, but I could go on and on about the advantages of cats. sometimes it just comes down to the lifestyle difference each type of boat provides. The sensation is different. 30+ years of sailing monohulls brought me to catamarans so without that history I would not love cats the way I do.

  33. Thx for your comments, mono vs cat. I agree.

  34. It's not a BBQ it's a gas grill. BBQ is smoking over time. Your not able to do that on a gas grill.

  36. I think the catamarans Comfort would be great but the half-million-dollar price tag is a non-starter.

  37. Great episode. Wondering why you though that the cat was a Dog. 7kts on your boat. What did the cat do? I've seen open 40 do 18 or 19 knots. Perhaps the sensation of speed is reduced without the heeling?

  38. Multis have to be at least partially designed for racing. Cruising cats and tris are too heavy. And port lights aren't supposed to be that big. Four to six inch diameter circles.

  39. well as long as im dreaming screw a cat I want a yacht

  40. I grew up in Louisville, Ky. and on the Ohio River there were lots of houseboats. I think of catamarans as sea houseboats. I'm not a big fan of houseboats.

  41. I think cats and and monos are cool in their own way. (I don't own either and have only done spot/leisure sailing). Sailing a mono seems more true sailing, but thats just nostalgic feeling and I for a cruising boat Id prefer a boat thats more stable. Nearly keeling over seems more like sth to do in a sports sailing boat rather than my "house".
    + cats are more stable (then again without knowing to much about it I think tipping over a bit from a gust does provide relief on the sails and force on the boat which may serve as "safety feature" whereas a cats sails will stay at their proper angle till its to to late, either breaking point or possible sudden tipping and capsize)
    – feel less like proper sailing
    – need to rely on instruments more than on feeling to decide "how much wind is to much"
    – if you manage to capsize no chance of getting it right side up again without big help
    – usually more pricy
    + a lot more space at similar length both cabin wise and on deck, +tramp! (though I don't think you really should compare them of the same size but rather compare a cat to a mono quite a few feet/meters longer than the cat due to space & price both)
    + cats can stay in more shallow water
    + some cats can (if done right) be beached without damaging them
    + they often come with more windows / natural light
    – bobbing in rougher sees the waves slapping against the central structure can be VERY loud
    + a little bit of redundancy due to instruments, steering, rudder being on both hulls.
    + generally faster

    Regarding the fisherman while I feel that dragging another boat away and possibly not handling or securing it right is a big no no, with the exception of the boat causing or being in immedate danger, I can also imagine the "native" fisherman being annoyed of "invasive sailors" or tourists in their (perceived) fishing territory. That said I do believe conscious sailors, like conscious hikers to be the least invasive tourists possible and the way promotable.(for the lack of a better word right now)

    Also great to see from you again, love your Vlog its so personal and I love how much your'e doing on your boat yourself which shows you as less entitled than many other sailing vlogs. Keep up the great work, stay safe and enjoy yourselves.

  42. ####Oh WoW , you guys sound so arrogant. The Employed guys that produced that Cat with the" disappointing build quality" are workers who are in society to increase the common good. Dan we have seen your "work". How would you like someone to come aboard Uma and Rate it. Suppose you cant wait to get back to that engineless floating TenT and wait for the Keel to fall off. That would be so less comfortable..

  43. they were so pissed they did not even bother to notify authorities, now someone else will be victimized, where I come from, those fishermen would be treated as pirate criminals and dealt with.
