Re: Which is worse, a CAT that has some hull slap or Mono rolling on the hook?

Plenty of monos with reverse transoms and flattish counters can 'slap' badly too - not usually on the hook but with a stern wind at a dock (or strong tidal infuence spinning you around) and will do it in conditions that would not bother a cat. The noise is irksome to say the least, much more so than the feeling of rolling.

I find I can get comfortable as the boat moves to the swells (within reason), but the slap keeps me awake.

btw Zanshin and JW29 make good points...
