these are all pretty biased views written from the point of cat-lovers...
there was one thing in all of them:
"if a cat capsizes, it stays afloat turtled - a mono sinks within 30 seconds..."
where does that BS come from?
that is just plain bollocks! why should a mono sink the time it capsizes?
it might loose its rig, but it will right itself again in no matter of time...

so the question is rather:
are you willing to stay in an overturned boat for days and await rescue, or are you rather prefer an upright boat and wait there for rescue if you desire or simply keep on going?
and that is exactly the point why i prefer monos with all their disadvantages if i go for long term, ocean crossing cruises...
