Re: How do you feel about catamarans?

we had a fast aussie tri come into the country...a few months ago...they only stayed a couple of days and scooted off into the sunset!

it was around 40-45 ft...very modern...they were probably delivering it to the carribean or something

Im guessing their crusing speed was in the mid to high teens vs. what 5-6kts most midsize monohulls these days?

makes you think huh?

ps. Id take a tri over a cruising cat any day of the week I love that tris have that mono feel in the middle and basically you are just playing with amas...

peace

Islander 36 no longer for sale...its MINE!
