name is Marco Failla, i'm 25 year old.
I live in Sicily (Italy of course).
I'm not an engineer, i'm a medical
doctor so you probably are asking yourself: "what am i doing here? An M.D.
writes about marine engineering and i am reading this, for what? "
I started sailing something like 14
years ago with my first windsurf, after many summers spent on my boards
i thougth that a fast sailboat was the right answer for those days spent
on a beach waiting for stronger wind. What's better therefore of a beach
catamaran. So i have choosen a Class A cat (probably the more extreme of
catamaran classes) from BIMare. It's very fast, but it's designed for only
one person and it's too delicate for a normal rectreational sailing (two
person on board). From here the need ( it would be more correct to say
pleasure ) for a bigger boat. But most of all i'm very intersted
in the whole process involved in design, i have looked for something similar
around the Net for a little, i haven't found what i was looking for so
i have decided to put together what i have learned out there. That's all.
Obiouvsly this site doesn't intend to exhaust the questions... But it can
help, moreover i'm very happy to contact other people intersted on those
things that want to share their knowdledge with as much people as possible.
all of you that ask why i haven't updated the site for a such long time, here
below some pictures of me doing my military service.
