Hull 1  Tango
We took delivery of Hull #1 in May 2004, naming her "Tango" because everyone knows that it takes two to Tango, so what better name for a catamaran sailboat! Following a suitable christening ceremony, held at Albert's Marina near the TomCat plant, she commenced her journey down the Trent Canal system. 41 locks later, she arrived at her home port of Belleville, Ontario, Canada (photo on the right). The Bay of Quinte offers sixty miles of fairly sheltered waters that zig zag out to Lake Ontario. A two day sail leads to our favorite cruising grounds in the 1,000 Islands (top left photo).
The top right photo is Tango's owners, Kerry and Ted. Some of our regular crew include Elaine and Ron, shown in the photo on the left. Of course, one always needs to be training new crew for the future.
The photo on the right shows Kerry training our grandson on how to use a winch to pull in the genoa. Two of our grandchildren take sailing lessons at the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club, of which we are members.

Tango's Arch is popular when we use Tango as a platform to take parents out to watch their children perform at sailing camp. The spacious trampoline may be used to store our Zodiac 310, or to relax and soak up the sun, or both!
