Hi Ruby Rose! You two are clearly inspiring, to be clear, and I thank you for your enthusiasm and teaching! But perhaps you might leave your marketing prose and power for just a moment, and speak to a few questions I have re: the Seawind 1370 vs the Balance 442. Allow me a brief bio of myself so you know from whence I come: soon to retire ophthalmologist, monohull sailor, with a passion to explore (and no interest to market my exploration) and serve in remote parts of the world in the healthcare realm, while sailing of course, and along with my wife. I have been on the verge of ordering the Balance 442 and wonder why you all did not go with that? No shame of course if it was a simple matter of convenient timing and financial “encouragement” from Seawind. Please, should you feel comfortable, and of course off the record, I would appreciate your candor in sharing the why and why fors of your choice! It would be helpful to know if you truly thought of the B 442 as the better built Cat, or the potential to be so, or not? Thank you, Ed

Hi Ed- thanks for the comment! We loved the Balance 442 but we love the 1370 more 😊 Once we get a chance to see the Balance 442 in real life, we’ll definitely do a comparison (and try and make it as objective as possible!) because you’re not the only one who has been trying to decide between these two catamarans. We knew we wanted a Seawind from the moment we stepped onboard the 1600 and 1260 and we really clicked with the company and the people behind the scenes that we’d ultimately be working really closely with, so it all just fell into place for us. Best of luck with your search!

Love the Q&A video but, the flashing/multicolor/shredding graphics are annoying and add little IMO. I get that some people think all that stuff is cool but not me. Let’s stick to sailing. Love your videos and look forward to seeing you both on Ruby Rose 2.

I can not begin to tell you how incredibly helpful your technical series has been to me. It has been a real eye opener to me.

I also have a question please.

I would like to be able to use my cat on long single handed cruises. Is there a cut off length or is there a preference for daggerboard vs conventional cruiser, or other specific requirements I should carefully look for to meet my solo sailing interests? Mostly I would sail the boat with my wife and from time to time we would have one or all of our 3 grown up children on board. So space is something we need to consider very well. I also understand that the sensitivity to additional weight load can be particularly strong on the smaller cats, say 40 foot and under. Personally, I think 45 foot is about the right sort of size … but then, my question is, can you handle such a boat on your own, if so desired?

Thank you again for the incredible series of video’s. Truly helpful and inspirational. I love to see how you guys get on with the new 1370 – what a stunner she will be!

Hey Eric- sorry for the delay in replying. I think 45 foot could be a lot of boat to handle on your own, particularly when it comes to docking or closer quarter manoeuvring. Once you’re underway, it shouldn’t be a problem if all your lines lead back to the cockpit and in fact a catamaran is probably safer to solo sail than a monohull because there’s probably less chance of MOB due to the stable platform. If your wife will be onboard, but she’s not a sailor and you are, effectively, single handing then I’d say 45 foot should be possible if she is able to lend a hand while docking. If you’re truly on your own, well, I’d try and charter a few and test them out before you buy. Good luck!
