Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

I see these posts about 'not wanting to take catamarans across the pond,' but it should be noted that EVERY ONE of these boats, unless they're built in the States or the Carib, has crossed at least once. Examples:

--Fontaine-Pajot, Lagoon, and Catana are all built in France and sailed over from there.
--Wildcat, Voyage, St Francis, Leopard/Robinson & Caine, those are built and sailed over from South Africa
--Catalacs are from England, aren't they? Certainly the Prouts are.

AFAIK, the only production cats in the Americas are Gunboat and Gemini. Manta was, but I think they're out of business, and I'm not sure about where the PDQ hails from.
