Re: Best catamaran for circumnavigation

While I see this is an older thread I have gleaned some great info. Thanks to pontiakos, wide openDDS and sailingdog, in particular, for the list of books which I will look in to. I am moving to Pensacola area soon and, while I have a lot of water and boat exp, I have only limited sailing and sailboat ownership under my belt. My wife and I took ASA 101 and I truly want a multihull (space, safety, comfort). Top dream boats seem to be the Antares line but I think finances will prevent that. I am seriously considering a monohull approx 30-40 feet to learn on for about 2-3 years. Does this seem like long enough to get proficient before moving to multi? I will also take the other ASA courses. I know all boats aren't bluewater but assume with proper provisioning they can be. I have much to learn and am thankfull to anyone who shares their knowledge herein. The goal is to spend serious time aboard once proficiency is gained in 3-5 years.
