Two men were killed and two others rescued when their 28-foot catamaran capsized off the coast of Ocean City on Monday morning, U.S. Coast Guard officials said. A person on a nearby boat named Lori M reported the capsized catamaran 32 miles northeast of Ocean City at about 9 a.m., the Coast Guard said. People on another nearby boat, named the Just Right Five, rescued two 55-year-old men who had been onboard the catamaran, the Coast Guard said. A MH-65 Dolphin helicopter then arrived, and a Coast Guard rescue swimmer was deployed into the water, where he was able to recover two other men, aged 53 and 65, with the help of another vessel, the Lori M, the Coast Guard said.

A Florida firm has paid $4.5 million for Pier 7 Marina in Edgewater and plans to transform the property on the South River, which includes Coconut Joe's, into a yacht club. A&S Smith Development, which is the real estate division of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based The Catamaran Group, bought the marina in May, according to online records. While the property at 48 South River Road in Edgewater was not listed for sale, Glenn Sutton, who brokered the deal for PTR Sotheby's International Realty, said A&S Smith Development put in an offer that was too good to refuse.

Jim Murray, a Wall Street stock trader, was in Annapolis the other day to look at a boat. He is not an experienced sailor. What attracts him to the water is the notion of replacing tension with tranquility, of substituting island-hopping for the daily commute. He has mulled over the choice facing all sailors: mono-hull or multi-hull. His wife, Mary, helped him with the decision. She doesn't like heeling over, and she wants space. Jim was in town a look at a catamaran. As a visit to any local marina will quickly prove, this puts him in a distinct minority.

Randy Smyth sailed to his fourth straight overall victory, beating 18 other crews in the Worrell 1000 race for 20-foot catamarans when the 1,000-mile run from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., finished in Virginia Beach, Va. yesterday. Maryland professional sailors Rick Deppe and Tom Weaver, dogged by mishap throughout their debut in a race that prides itself on being for "plastic boats, iron men," ended the 12-leg competition in last position. For the second time in consecutive races, the two Annapolis residents were dismasted off Cape Hatteras.

Occasionally, you meet characters who seem ideally cast for their roles on the water. Rick Deppe and Tom Weaver are two such - young, confident professional sailors who make their homes in Annapolis, but travel the world to wherever there is a boat in need of their talents. They are, as they will tell you, superbly fit and slightly crazy. They've just been half-sunk, capsized, half-drowned and dismasted in rapid sequence during a 1,000-mile catamaran race along the Eastern Seaboard. The dismasting was the second time within as many weeks that a boat they were sailing lost its "stick" off Cape Hatteras, one of the most treacherous stretches of the Atlantic.

ON ANY GIVEN weekend and on many warm summer weeknights on the Chesapeake Bay, white sails appear to float atop the water, pulling dozens, sometimes hundreds, of hulls around courses marked by bright orange buoys. These sailboat races are most often sponsored and produced by local yacht clubs. Some are more formal than others. The West River Catamaran Racing Association (WRCRA) based in Galesville in South Anne Arundel County is decidedly on the less formal - but no less competitive - side of racing.

Catamarans - power as well as sail - are making the wave of the future. Already accepted in Europe and increasingly popular in the Caribbean, the multihulls with the undeserved reputation of flipping over are slowly but surely finding favor in the United States. They are a major feature in both the United States Sailboat Show, which ends tomorrow, and the United States Powerboat Show, which runs Thursday through Sunday. Multihulls Magazine and Power Multihulls Magazine are again sponsoring a special lagoon at the respective shows, filled with boats designed to overcome the resistance of their worst critics.

The Nemo has eight double cabins with a head in each, an innovative salon, extremely large cockpit and a multimillion-dollar price tag.According to show organizers, catamarans in the 30- to 36-foot range are the fastest-growing segment of the multihull market because they are easily handled, outfitted for living aboard and safe in virtually any sea conditions.
