Just as the question states. 2 adult people thinking about retirement 10 years earlier.
First post here.
I am building a catamaran RC boat
That's the only photo I have right now. Since the pandemic I haven't been able to return to the shop.
I already have this ESC, Motor and RC controller.
I was thinking of just buying another motor and esc of the same models to complete the project, but I have some doubts about how to control the boat.
I was thinking about two possible ways to control it.
The first option is easy to do and would work with this rc c... keep reading on reddit ➡
Would it be cost effective is Marina berth charge's, house hold charge?
Discuss. I need to win an argument.
So what would you do if you had $2mil to buy/build/customize a catamaran that was not only capable of sailing around the world, but was super luxurious, close to 100% green (eg no diesel), and as automated/technologically advanced as they get these days. It would need to be able to sail by one or two people.
Would you have one custom built? Would you buy something used and upgrade the hell out of it?
I learned to sail years ago on a laser and moved to PWCs for lake fun (stand up jetskis). The noise and difficulties of the skis have worn on me over the years and I'm looking to return to sailing. Small catamarans in particular have my attention (Hobie 16, 18, etc).
My only concern is that I'm pretty heavy at 6'1" 280. I would also like to sail with my gf at around 135 so 415ish total crew weight on a normal day. How would a Hobie 16 handle with that much crew? Hobie 18? Prindle 16/18? I'm trying to get an idea of which boats would be ideal at our combined weight, and which I should avoid as I start shopping. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I was originally going to aim for a Hobie 16 but heard they pitchpole very easily with 400+lbs of crew.
Zen : a state of calm attentiveness in which one's actions are guided by intuition rather than by conscious effort
The Zen Catamaran isn’t a place of blind optimism but a place of calm realization that we are the best team in the NBA and even the best team in the NBA has its ups and downs. We’re able to see our team’s struggles and realize that we’re not anywhere near close to being in any sort of panic mode even if the team’s recent struggles continue on weeks into the future.
On the Zen Catamaran we realize…
The arbitrary markers on which some judge this season never mattered but now really don't matter....
The 58 game sample size leading up to the recent 5 game sample size is a better indicator or where the team as a whole... keep reading on reddit ➡
So this is truly a incredible library and I share it with you direct via Bandcamp. If you not familiar with Bandcamp to download the library you don't need to sign up for anything. Just click on download and type in "0". Also make sure you select wav and not mp3 for the high quality files. Working on the next library already :). Greetings, Marcel
Deciding between the tfl outerlimits and the tfl genesis, I mostly run my boats in a river
I am a big Technic guy, I know many don't care. Big saw the recent price drop at both Walmart and Amazon. Have not seen it below MSRP and I had been looking.

My wife and I are looking to sell our house and buy a Catamaran in 18-22 months after our youngest daughter is off to college.
I am interested in getting feedback on the most trouble-free cat for voyaging. All of the cat's we have rented have been 1 to 5 years old but they all have had expensive problems with them (water-maker failure, faulty fridges, low-quality hardware, and on and on…)
So, is the only way to do it right is buy used, gut everything, do it yourself and not cheap-out on materials like some of these production cat manufactures do?
We could buy a good quality used catamaran and spend a year or two prepping it…but we are not getting younger (I’m 54 and my wife is 52) and don’t want to spend 10 years fixing it up. We want to get out there asap. So, has anyone heard of a type / brand of Catamaran that’s just built so well (kinda like a Honda / Toyota) that if routine maintenance is kept up it will run forever..?
We have only sailed Cats and my wife loves them. I do... keep reading on reddit ➡
