Re: For experienced cruisers ...
Thanks for the responses, they are exactly the sort of things I was looking for. Hope that more come in. A very preliminary judgement is that a lot of monohull sailors would like to have a catamaran in the 40 to 50' range, although cost is a big problem.
Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
