Hi Chris

Have you had a chance to read Dr. Gavin LeSuer ? He publishes a book called "Multihull Seamanship Illustrated" which deals with some of this stuff. It should be available from Hope this helps!

Hi Jerry,

I take it then, that the drogue method of heaving-to at a 45 degree angle to the seas, as presented by long time cruiser, Larry Pardey, in his monohulls is not suitable, from your experience?

Don't take this the wrong way... I'm not experienced in being in a multihull in truly bad weather and wish to gather as much info as possible before setting-out on my own adventure.
