For years, some of our competitors have been making claims that their designs are immune to pitching. "They don't pitch", are the exact words of one seller of DreamBoats. Charitably, I'll say that the person making this claim was confused. All marine vessels operating on the surface pitch. Cruising sailboats operate on the ocean surface which is almost always subject to waves, and waves make a vessel pitch. End of story. Submarines don't pitch when they are submerged and SWATH vessels pitch very little due to their extremely small waterplane area. EVERYTHING else pitches in waves!

I have noticed recently that a couple of our competitors in the field of high performance cruising cats are advertising that their designs are "optimized for hull flying". Hull flying, for anyone unfamiliar with the concept, is defined as sailing the boat hard enough to raise the windward hull out of the water on a sustained basis.
