Good analysis sailingdog. Short and sweet. There's lots more but you nailed the major points. Living on the level adds a lot to comfort. Room to stretch, hang a hammock, throw a cast net, store toys, etc... Main living space (salon) is near the same level as the cockpit and adds an immense amount of air and light to your living accommodations. Lots more space topsides but the weight issue is a major factor. Most multihulls loose most if not all speed advantage as you get into a livaboard situation. Amazing how much stuff you can put on a boat and the effect of the cumulative weight.
