Sailing the Proteus 106 catamaran
Rick lived on his Proteus 106 (extended) yacht for some nine years, it was sold recently and is now used in the charter trade.
Here is what Rick Daniel, the Thai boat owner says:
Photo's of my sail boat in Koh Chang, Koh Mac, Koh Kood Islands, Thailand I still have poor fitting second hand sails and need more work, but having fun with the boat.
I Recently sailed to windward in 35 plus knots gusts of head wind and full steady wind of 25 knots with 2nd reef and 2 meter waves. Had some waves over the cabin top and really tested the boat build.
I was very happy with the boat and it pointed very well to weather. It was not a enjoyable beat to weather, it was only about 4 hours. But the boat got a good test.
Proof enough that this Proteus 106 design has room to spare.
Kits can be purchased from www.ckdboats.com we can ship world wide.
