Its interesting to see you mention you prefer running - having gone through that storm tactics book it sounds like it would be low on my list of choices; at least for a monohull. The thought of broaching sounds horrendous and pitchpoling doesn't sound much better. Heaving to sounds positively serene in comparison which is why I am curious how well cats heave to; if I buy a cruising boat it would only be a cat - the SO would never go for a mono for a multitude of reasons.
