Another life-dumping-log of a geek, which prefers Linux/UNIX to the rest.
When sailing, you need stability. They are two ways to get it :
- a big, heavy lead bulb under the boat (if you dig, you find lead. That’s why we call these boats “lead mines”.)
- a second hull (makes more sense, and that’s why I prefer it this way)
Picture by Pascal Francey. June 3, 2007, lake of Biel, Switzerland. The wind was 1-2 Bft, and I’m already hanging out. As Benji says : it’s not clear why anyone would sail anything different than the Class A catamarans.
When not sailing, I’m an ETS engineer specialising in UNIX & network monitoring, doing
SunOracle Solaris and Linux. Check my company web site for details.
