Re: How do you feel about catamarans?
For the kind of sailing we do - weekend live aboard, fair weather coastal in thin water - I can definitely see the attraction of something like this:
Fountaine Pajot Athena 38, Fort Pierce, FL $149,000
I never gave much thought to cats in the past, but I'd take a look if/when we decide to go a little bigger. Sounds like a good excuse to do a charter to get a feel for how it sails and whether it "fits" us.
As for people on this thread being "touchy", "opinionated" and "spouting off without first hand knowledge" -- you do realize this is the Internet right?
