wait... could it be that all of your references are multis?
very clever - you support your boat by saying that other cats are as heavy as yours.... ?
Displacement is not the same as "weight" now is it?
it is...
Catalac catamarans regularly cross oceans. There are two examples on that same website, if you bothered to read it.
wow - i am astonished...
out of - how many - 2 have crossed "oceans"... ?
define "oceans" please.
Also a Catalac 12M survived the Queen's Birthday Storm, at ground zero.

Google it.
sure not!
you have an evidence, bring it to me.
i will not do your job...

It was very impressive as every monohull caught in that same storm rolled, and was dismasted with serious injuries and deaths.

Your ignorance just trashed one of the most sea worthy catamarans of them all.
sure not!
you have an evidence, bring it to me.
i will not do your job...
And by the way I love that website reference you used. I ought to, I wrote it.
you coded that site?

oh and btw - i am a software engineer by profession and ... no and.
