Re: Anyone living on a Gemini 105MC

The Gemini would be good for the Chesapeake the ICW and the Bahamas.

However getting out to the Eastern Caribbean will be VERY hard work in one when the short steep seas of the notorious 'Caribbean Two Step' are running. Small heavy catamarans do not do well out here.

IMHO if you can not afford a 40ft + cat then a monohull is better.

But if you can grit your teeth and once out to the Eastern Caribbean pick your weather windows carefully then it will do.

BTW where would YOU sit in the cockpit at anchor in one. You do not want to be inside in the greenhouse in the sun.
