Monohull vs cat on extended passage?

I only get this second hand, but i talked to a very experienced delivery skipper (he was a crew member in Fastnet ''79 and has circumnavigated several times). He says he prefers a monohull''s motion to the "slap, slap, slap" of a cat, though admits the more modern cat designs have somewhat solved the problem.
