Just gorgeous photos, VP! This is a beautiful craft. I've never been on a catamaran, but it looks like fun. And what a great project!

I love how catamarans look. This is the biggest I've seen so far. I like its colorful markings and its advocacy.

Great stuff, these things are so important.

I prefer "monocoques" myslelf though I have to say your second photo makes me want to RUN back to where I've just come back from!

Love the background in the first photo too.
