Welcome Burg and Semper FI,
You ever sailed an H18? People are telling me, and I am pretty well convinced, that the 18 is better, and more fun, in heavy air on big water.
What do you think?
As far as the fat bottomed monohull goes....right on! Aren't we all looking to be on one of those in the islands?
I am imagine winning the lotto and sailing down to the islands on a fat, fat, fat assed monohull and buying a couple of Hobies upon my arrival and sailing and giving rides and lessons and renting the Cats out on the beach and spreading the fever to others.
Thanks for your service man,
