My heart is still with monohulls, but there seems to be a growing market for cats and a cat instruction, so ....

I have taught on both sail cats and power cats. I love the room and the twin engines on a cat, but I prefer the feel of a monohull. Maybe I will get more of feel for the cat.

The company for whom I do most of my instruction is a cat dealer as well and they want me to get the instructor certification.
