Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

[QUOTE=smj;1625146]If there was such a big risk of a cat flipping and lives being lost why do insurance companies consider cats to be an equal or better risk than a mono. Surely of all people they would know the risks?[/QUOTE

Aside from all passionate arguments, they reduce it to facts. Imagine that.

Or it could be as simple as dock-side sinkings. Perhaps cats are less likely to sink in the harbor, and that is really the insurers greatest risk.
