Re: How do you feel about catamarans?
I really think they will overtake monohulls in popularity in the next 20 years.
In the past many monohull sailors switched to powerboats as the "matured." (I refuse to age.)
I have a sense that some may switch to cats rather than powerboats.
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.
