This sleek catamaran zips by Caxambas Pass, Marco Island, Florida. Its multi-hull, equipped without a heavily weighted keel, makes this craft prone to capsize. This stiff March wind makes for an exciting, fun filled excursion. A fast acting crew must keep the sails properly trimmed. A mono-hulled sailboat utilizes a heavily weight keel to counteracting the strong force of wind gusts. Unlike this catamaran, the sailboat it can right itself when overturned due to the heavy amount of ballast.
