This my be your "internet" where you feel free to spout off inaccurate information ... but thousands of new sailors depend on this site. If you can't be accurate, why don't you play on your internet somewhere else?
Perhaps this thread needs to be forked into two:
"Why I [ hate|love ] catamarans", and
"Experienced catamaran sailors speak".
Maybe cat owners could start a thread in the Boat Design/Review forum to which we could point aspiring cat owners looking for sound advice.
There are many pages of cat threads on sailnet; seekers can copy & paste this into their search window to find them:
