Roving on internet I came along with a very old sales video from the Prindle company:



https://youtu.be/Po4yotgj8do


You all know that I made my own unsinkable version of the P15 about 10 years ago. Built from foam and epoxy laminate. And I still sail on it summer and winter on the Northsea.
So with this vid I celebrate the 47 birthday of the three Prindle cats ( 15,16 and 18)

It's nice to compare this with our world nowadays.

Thanks for sharing!

Love the way the ads were done back in the early "catamaran wars" days.

Both Prindle and Hobie tended to feature young girls sailing alone in the open ocean, not a PFD in sight!

Times indeed change.
