Title: Catamarans for Cruising
Description: London England, Hollis & Carter, 1981. 2nd Edition, Binding: Soft Cover, Jim Andrews Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0370303822 Paperback Paperback. Foxing to edge. This is a book for anyone whose dream it is to buy or hire a cruing catamaran. it is packed with detailed information about virtually every British cruising cat on the market. After comparing the advantages offered by catamarans and monohulls, it discusses different makes of catamaran, assesses hull construction and balance, sail plans, above - and below - deack accomodation, handling characteristics (with and without engine) and investigates the safety aspects of catamaran sailing. The question of capsizing is thoroughly covered: it is very difficult to capsize a catamara, the author finds, unless it is excessively over-canvassed - indeed its stability and ease of handling make it kind on its crew and an ideal boat for family sailing. There is scarecely a question about the choice and handling of a crusing catamaran which is not answered in these pages. The text is suppmeneted by thirty plans and diagrams. Illustrated. 224 pp.
