First, I apologize. Some post simple questions simply to generate noise. If you are simply curious, I was wrong. However, philisophically, there is a LOT of postings on this subject; I always search before I ask.

But the reason for my irritation is that this sort of question ALWAYS leads to a flurry of sailors that know NOTHING about catamarans giving silly, uninformed opinions. It's just tiresom. Some of the posts were from expereinced folks--I'm not talking about you.

The best answer, particularly if you have limited sailing experiece, is to sail many boats. Likes and dislikes are very personal. I enjoy many boats, both mono and multi.
For the OP:
Since the forum search feature has less than stellar performance, to search the sailnet forums for info on a particular subject, use this format in your search engine:

"catamaran" site:http://www.sailnet.com/forums/

Put your search terms inside the quotes. The more you put in, the fewer results you get, but they are more focused on what you want. For instance, searching for "catamaran sailboats" yields 4 hits; "catamaran" yields several pages of results.

N.B. There is no {space} between "site:" & the address you want to search.
