I responded with my observations about Geminis to your post some weeks ago in the "Buying a Boat" category. Check there for it. I guarantee my opinion is unbiased. Maybe not all that helpful, but at least unbiased. I can''t comment on the others, but will add one to your list. Check out the Victory 35 catamaran. Not sure you can find one in your price range, but I looked at a new one in the Annapolis show last fall and was impressed. I just wish catamarans weren''t so ugly to my eye!
