Hi Ken ,

Further info. regarding the name "Trim" of that other boat , which is a Catamaran designed and built by Tim Mumby a famous Catamaran designer - both now in mouth of the Rovumo River (the border between Tanzania and Mozambique. Tim named this Catamaran after the name of Matthew Flinders' cat (him wot surveyed most of Australia's coast a couple hundred years ago)

Trim the cat sailed the seas with Matthew when he discovered that Australia was a continent rather than a group of islands - to read a about a really fantastic cat see :- Trim

Yep...I know the Trim Cat history.

Our Trim however, got named as a result of a drunken pirate party. At first the name was dismissed as "You can't possibly name a boat Trim"...to being accepted when we were installing teak planks and noticed that every plank had the word "trim" written on it to indicate where to cut. The name stuck and we like to use it as a litmus test for drinking buddies, women and crew. It seems to keep the "yachties" away quite well

See...it works. You can tell by the use of phases like "most certainly", that you would not want to drink with this person.

Please find attached a photo of the real catamaran "Trim". The other photo is Mozart a 2002 version of the same design built by Tim. Tim is now in Trinidad. There are approximately 18 of Tim's cats either on the water or in build at the moment all over the place including England, Brazil, Australia, Philipines x1 , Thailand x 3 including Tim's brothers cat and Mozart the cat in the other picture, Tonga X 1, Trinidad "Trim" .All of Tim's cats are impressive alloy cats and fast.
