brings back memories - nothing harder than when ya buggered trying to upright a 16 foot cat that you just end for ended when you had one hull up by yourselfMy greatest passion is sailing and I use to race an Olympic Tornado catamaran. Our race team was called 'Alive' and this is where Tornado ALIVE came from. Since then, each class of boat I have raced have been called 'Alive'.
