Hey Cam, Thanks for the hospitality.
The beautiful thing about lessons is if you don't get it right the first time, you get to learn them again!
Still partial to multihulls but have been looking seriously at crossing over to the other side. As with everything, pros and cons with any vessel. From Cape Canaveral to Key West to the Bahamas, that shallow draft and turn of speed to move away from these cutely named spiraling disasters we are so prone to receiving is still appealing. Add on the deck and living space and also having previously owned and sailed cats and trimarans since 1981 it's a tough decision. Ultimately, I suppose comes down to the almighty dollar. Spend them all on the boat and keep working or spend a fraction on the boat and take 5-6 years off and sail/live/enjoy. I guess I am going to give up the training wheels.
