  1. The most important question is not answered: how to respond if large catamaran starts capsizing? Let's say one hull is out of the water and it does have the tendency to keep going up! How to stop it from doing so?

  3. How do you "reef down" during a passage (assuming it's nighttime and you can't see weather patterns)?

  4. This isn't a pretentious statement , but Catamarans will always have the Capsize flaw. I think the only way out of this problem is to design a Cat. that has the same profile upside down as the topsides. So in the event of a capsize you wait out the bad weather inverted, and after its passed basically winch the mast up through the deck.

  6. Is there a device that sends out a distress signal and location when a boat is capsized?

  8. compare typical life vests with kapoks. only kapocks are inherently buoyant. a high pressure air flask could inflate air bags which could keep boat afloat or even right an overturned boat.

  10. If the cat is about to capsize, why not have something that would allow you to immediately cut the whole main sail off? Even if the sail was destroyed by the operation surely it is better to lose the sail than lose the cat.

  11. If you are about to capsize. Be aware of flying loose floorboards and compartment contents before diving into the hulls. Most modern cats do not have locked down floorboards.

  12. Instead of just talking, you should just simply have demonstrated the man overboard manoeuvre.

  13. you see i would want to be out side of the boat. not in the hulls. i would get between the hulls try to take one of the sails down and use it as a tent between them. this would give you shelter and give the coastguard something to see from the air.

  14. Could have giant airbags about the size of a large life raft inside the Salon or on the sides, once automatically deployed when capsized they would displace enough water to keep the hull almost completely above water

    It would be great advertising to sell Catamarans to families as an extra added safety feature (except for Weight and Cost of course)

    Offer a Million Dollar prize to anyone that can capsize and sink one of their boats

    # Forget all that – I already can't afford one :P, they'll raise the price another 100k at least
