Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

Excellent thread and plenty of food for thought..especially as I myself am seeing big multihulls in huge numbers come down the ICW this spring thus far...many are quite attractive...Perhaps some have watertight hatches built into the hull below waterline that could hold rafts and survival bags that could be accessed by "m.o..b's " in the event of a capsize? In any case...I have thought that cats would be great for alot of types of sailing many folks do where legs can be completed in three- day weather windows or less...beyond that I would be a bit wary of being offshore in one..but their speed in the right conditions is certainly highly enticing ..just some thoughts..hope this thread still has more in it...
