Header Photo: A Dutch Skûtsje Capsized

I mentioned in my previous post about the the Dutch Skûtsje working scow that they do indeed capsize. In this photo lifted from the InterWebs, it is unclear whether this behemoth is just going over or just coming up! (I'm guessing from the way the mainsail is eased that this one is being righted.)

This is why the Polynesians invented the catamaran. :)

An A-scow? Too small. Definitely the worlds biggest scow. Catamarans, when they capsize, do throw their crew from considerable heights into the sail, or mast, or water.
