    Sorry for that particular video guys :rolleyes: ..
    .....but that song popped into my head, and that video was the first thing up when I googled the song. I posted that comment before I even had time to review the video myself. :eek:

    power or sail ??

    Hi there, lucky guy (I guess I should change my name :))

    decide if you want engines rumbling or wind whistling, then decide if you want to heel over in a monohull or slam some waves in a multihull.
    After that: sounds like you're a hands-on man, so why not take it down a notch, we've invested about 100k and have been on the water over two years now, still living well, you can dream a lot longer that way, and believe you me, after investing whatever sum of money, you'll still be investing on a daily bases, because hey, it's a boat..... it'll always eat away on your budget, no matter how big the boat, no matter how big the budget
    :)

    Hummingbyrd 62 Power Cat



    I had made reference to this 62 powercat "Hummingbyrd" before, but I just recently dug out an old article I had saved on this vessel. It was written by a gentleman Tim Askins who had been searching for his next vessel to go cruising....and he was looking again at monohull trawlers that he had been comfortable owning in the past. Then he and his wife got an invite to make a trip from Fl out to the Bahamas for a nice long demonstration ride.

    I made a PDF document of that old article but could not post it on this forum as it does not allow that size document. So I posted it over HERE:

    I think you will find it very interesting.
