If you enjoy the 'feel of a boat' while sailing, a catamaran is not for you. Think of them as your home away from home which doesn't roll at anchor or DDW. I do agree with chuckles that cats do heel, but in my case it takes 22 knots of wind under full sail to get to a measurable heel.
The SN catamaran folks are out sailing and such, far from the internet.

Your Catalac is solid cruising cat, same basic length as mine, heavier and IIRC a 18 foot beam compared to a Gem's 14.
No doubt you heel less.
I installed an inclino-meter as a joke, it only went to 10 degrees.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
