Re: Lets have a chat about multis.

I think ultimately I'm in agreement with Paulo.

Nothing wrong with cats, I'd be happy to own one but cost is the real issue.

We already own what is comparatively speaking a fairly expensive mono for her loa but even if we were to sell her we'd need at least her price again to buy a suitable cat.

Yes there are cheaper cats than USD$400,000 but not I fear to a build quality and fitout level of a Malo.

I still intend giving a charter a go later in the year. Maybe that will convince me one way or the other though the Wombet is adamant that mono is the go. Deep down inside that woman is somewhat conservative. Me I still like the idea of that big stable platform and even if not as fast as some multi lovers might like to believe under most circumstances when simply cruising the multi will tend to be just a wee bit quicker.

Me, I'm keeping my mind open.
