    Re: Bow beam for 50 foot cat

    Hi 44C, thanks for the compliments.

    I've never been a fan of the "Gunboat" look, but you're right, it looks very similar. It just sort of happens, when you decide on inside steering, and a front...

    Re: Assessing prices for older catamarans

    I agree with 44c.

    Decide what it's worth to you, then aim to get it for near that price. Fretting about "what if's" is a waste of time. I've often paid more than "market" value for something...
