Jack and Tempest, thank you for the great info. Yes, as of now, we are planning on doing the BVI. If you have any special spots you would recommend visiting, I would gladly take any suggestions gladly.
I appreciate the info on the cat size. It does sound like a bit bigger boat would be ideal, but that a 40 foot cat would work (just be a bit tight during mealtime)
Can either of you tell me if sleeping on a cat tied that is tied off in a bay for the night is fairly smooth or rather rocky (we are looking in February in March if that makes any difference in water conditions)? We have a couple in our group who have had minor bouts of motion sickness in the past. We are not so much worried about while we are sailing and out in the open air, its more of the rocking motion while trying to sleep in a potentially stuffy cabin in the cat that concerns a few of our group.
Jack, I will be sure to have 2 Painkillers in your honor!
