Stabilizers rock not just on the outside bit other areas as well. I have used them on the ICW when a large sport fisher is bearing down or on the MS River with tugs and tows.

Our Naiads are great I know they are not cheap but are a good investment in your comfort.

We just returned Sunday from a 7 day cruise in the new Regal Princess. We hit Princess Cay (aleutian islands), St Thomas and St. Maarten. Both of the latter had a large population anchored/ moored in the bay's where the cruise ships dock. Almost all were sailboats. And a huge portion of these were Cat hull. I saw one uKrogen at anchor. I was really surprised at the lack of trawlers down there. Click image for larger version

It's not surprising if you think of it in terms of cost to get there. It's just cheaper to get there in a sailboat. And in some ways more comfortable too.

If you don't mind living on an angle in many cases.

When we got to the Azores, at both Lajes and Horta, they remembered the last power boat from the US, the Kadey Krogen 44 Le Reve.

People have been long distance sailing for thousands of years.

Us trawler folks are new to the game.
