Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Once they are full of cruising gear they dont point up wind . They are great when you get any where as far as space is concerned, they need huge anchoring gear as they try and sail the anchor out and very noisy with waves in between the hulls and when at sea in the rough most of them flex so much that you almost get catapulted through the roof and all the doors fly open.They make great floating caravans personally I wouldnt have one but lots of people love theirs.My father recently did a 2000 mile delivery on one into the wind he reckoned a good mono would have got to port a day earlier.
