    Default Fastcat 445 gains 2 tons

    I have noticed that the standard Fastcat 445 is now specified as having a weight of <7500 kgs.

    Seems at last as though the weight is coming into the believable region, probably still on the low side.

    Is Gideon running out of Helium?

    An owners take, posted in CF.

    " I have a beam of 7.42, but between the points where I will fix the bridle permanently I have about 7 meters. To give some quick specifications: I have a 43 feet catamaran weighing around 10 tons...."

    So a Fastcat 435 weighs around 10 tons? I can't see it being very fast.

    10 tons is about 9 tonnes. If that is actual displacement with gear, fuel and water aboard it is not heavy. I think we need a bit more definition of what we weight we are talking about. Can anyone elucidate?

    Also, what is "fast", in what wind speeds and on what angles of sail?

    The weight and speed of a Fastcat are always precisely what Gideon claims they are, for he is all-powerful. Didn't you know that?
