Cat Ketch

I am interested in learning more about these boats - cat ketch rigs in general and wishbone rigs. It seems that many of the older cat ketches were wishbone rigged, while many of them, and the newer models, have converted to conventional booms. I would like to know the pros and cons of this.

Please send any available information or references, as well as comments on personal experiences with these boats/rigs, suitability for short/long range cruising, etc.

Thanks
