Product Description

Multihull Video-Slideshows/Audios CD from John Marples

Why wait years to learn about multihulls? These
unique, one-of-a-kind, new media presentations
on CD show you what you absolutely need to know ...

If you re new to multihulls, have never owned or sailed one, or trying to decide if one might be right for you (or simply want to know a lot more about them) then KNOWING YOUR MULTIHULL with John Marples is for you.

What makes multihulls truly unique from monohulls? They really are a different kind of animal, multihull expert John Marples says. Many boaters do not really understand multi-hulled vessels.

The danger of not truly comprehending the physical forces at work on the powerful boat you're preparing to sail can cause problems for new owners (or less aware users). After 40+ years of experience in sailing, designing and surveying multihulls, there is hardly anyone out there who is more qualified to talk about catamarans, trimarans or proas.

Here are just a few of the topics you ll find inside this unique, multihull information resource:

-- What do multihulls offer as compared to monohulls (performance, draft & safety issues)

-- When catamarans are more sensible vessels than trimarans

-- Certain (currently) popular catamaran features that significantly hurt sailing performance

-- What type of boat will (generally) go better upwind (trimarans or catamarans?)

-- What proas can do that no other sailboats can do, including trimarans, catamarans and all monohulls

-- Why understanding the multihull platform is one of the most important concepts that a new multihull owner will ever grasp

-- What are the main stress points of a multihull s platform? (these can directly affect the longevity of a boat)

-- One design flaw that affects sailing performance on many cruising cats -- Danger signs when sailing (main differences between cats and tris)

-- How properly engineered multihulls can keep boat owners from wasting time and money

-- #1 multihull mistake (it decreases performance and safety)

-- How to easily perform routine maintenance tasks on cruising multihulls during an extended cruise

-- Active (and passive) pieces of equipment to help make your boat last for decades of active enjoyment

-- Avoiding component failures and rigging mistakes (with examples)

-- Certain structural deficiencies often associated with multihulls coming right out of the factory (and why)

-- How to hire a qualified (and economical) marine surveyor

-- Keeping your multihull in top condition without it becoming a money pit

Highly Valuable Multihull Content On An Easy-to-Use CD Interface:

6 Full Audio / Video Presentations & MP3 Audio-Only Presentations (featuring the same information as in the A/V presentations), Plus, a Bonus Feature: 1972 Transpac Video & Narration (by John)

If you really want to know about multihulls or you are thinking about making a boat purchase or committing to a long, expensive boat-building project of some kind, then you will shave years off the learning-curve with this information!
