    My sailboat hammers along at 7 knots, flat stick it gets 8 knots against an out going tide running at 6 knots,

    I did get 14 knots on the sails, Its a Cruiser not a Racer, Hahahaha

    Nice try, but it's not a foiler! Way faster than an America's cup Cat! Guess again Shewie?
    Torque it until it cracks then back it off a quarter turn.

    I can't think of any other waterborne sail craft that can push 100 mph. I'm thinking deadman must be onto it with his mention of an ice boat.

    Re: 2002 Silver Bird for sale CHERRY

    Those sail boats on the ice in Canada are capable of some thing like 300 kays or so, In a twenty five knot wind,

    The world record attempt for a sailing vessel was done off the coast of Africa, Just on sixty miles an hour, about 18 months ago,

    It was a triangular type boat, with 3 little thingys that actually sat on the water, There is a UTube video of it, I have seen it,

    No idea what its called, It came up on the Multihull Sailing Forum I am on,

    They also think I am off my head, Fiji to OZ single handed as my first Blue Water Sailing adventure, Hahahaha,

    But I did think that San Diego to OZ for my first trip, Was just a bit over the top, even for me, So I settled for a Boat from Fiji,

    We were all learners once, You dont know untill you go, But it was worth the experience, Hahahahaha,

    A couple of times, I looked up, and I was Dead, No Shit, Not Scared, It was well past that, I was Dead,

    A 12 metre vertical wave standing up at the transom, The previous wave had filled the cockpit up to my knees, Came in sideways,

    That thing drops on me, 50,000 tons of water, dropping on a 34 foot Cat, Im History, also in the middle of the Coral Sea,

    The boat just popped out from under it at the last minute, Such is Life, And it did it twice in less than a few hours,

    The ship that passed behind me earlier in the same day said they had Force 6 winds, It was bit on the breezy side,

    I was running before it with about a third of the Genoa up, No main sail, I dont want to break some thing out there,

    Sorry about the off topic,

    Re: 2002 Silver Bird for sale CHERRY

    Deadman, you are truley a sailor! That kind of off-shore adventure is far beyond the lake sailing we do in Montana! To be caught in a Force 6 storm that far from shore must have been terrifying...there is no escape! And, good guess, we do sail iceboats here. At least when the water is hard. In the warmer months, I sail an E Scow (search escow a go go on youtube), which is pretty darn fast. The ice boat is 32' off adrenaline. We hit speeds 5 times the wind speed on perfect ice. Top end is limited by terminal velocity and the grip of the runners, and is easily of 100mph! Acceleration is nearly that of a Blackbird! I tried to add pictures, not sure it worked. Check iceboat.org if you don't know what an ice boat is!

    Re: 2002 Silver Bird for sale CHERRY

    Thats the one I was thinking off, Ice Boats, They do Hammer, Scarily Fast,

    But I thought they only did it in Canada, Montana, Hey, My new lesson for the day, Thanks,

    I am not a Hero, On a Catamaran, You just run before the wind in heavy seas with no problems,

    The cockpit and rear of the boat is level and flat, Its very comfortable, irrespective of the wind strength,

    The front goes thru the water in a corkscrew fashion,

    The front half of the boat is Suicidal, Dunny, main bedroom, Shower, Front deck,

    on the front deck, only with a Full Harness and a central safety line, Thats short enough so that you cant go over the side,

    You go over the side, The force of the water will hold you there and you cant get back on the boat,

    Utube, Crossing the Tasman in a Gemini, Video's just dont do the waves justice, They make the waves look Tame, Hahahaha,

    The piccy, Waiting for the tide,
