I had not included multi-hulls in comparing underwater profiles and the ease of ferrying & backing a distance down a fairway. I understand your ability to ferry with the cat, but tell us more. Do you also find good control at backing a fair distance in a confined space. I suspect you have the best of both when it comes to this manuvering. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
