He is a determined individual and i have full faith in his expedition. I know he loves a challenge, and that's what life throws at us all the time. As for the rigging this is the sought of guy that Would swim home. They nick named him years ago NO FEAR, he use to swim 4-km of the beach to a reef that he use to spear fish on. He would spear up to 200-kg of very large fish and then sew there mouths up and tow them 70 feet behind him back to the beach. i take my hat of to him. CHEERS pepsi :lol:

Trying to beach my 21SE the other day because I left the plugs out :oops: made me think that the 21SE is not a beach cat either. This is one hefty boat to pull up onto a smooth washed gravel steep beach. I need to make the pvc ladders for the hulls.

I would like the umbrella for the sun if it could handle 15-20 mph winds. 8)

Looked at it again...

Quote:
Weight: 700 kg (1,543 lbs.)


As I said... NOT a beach cat. Yikes!!! Can you imagine beaching and hauling this up? The 21 was closer to 600 lbs and a BEAST!! This is near 3 x that.
