Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

As I see it, my opinion, y'all's may vary:

In regards seaworthiness, I believe that the newer (last 7-10 years) catamaran designs are frankly giving up the concept, and that is the main reason why I went through a lot of time and trouble to buy a 20 year old boat.

Older catamarans also have very different fit and finishes, much better quality, than the newer designs.

There are of course variances, but the above are trends that I have observed.
