I sail a CAT because I like sailing WITH my wife - and for 150k its a lot of well tested boat, in fact ditch the No-man and the Bendytoy and go buy a brand new Gemini instead. Drink Rum on the hook without cupholders, hell sail without cupholders

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks guys! Clearly there is no right or wrong answer here. I'm leaning toward the Norseman just becuase it matches my style (slow, old and expensive!)

Thanks again!

Dave

bene 473 is a great boat for carib. The boat sails best over 15 kts, is a pig below 10, but then again, below 10 put on the iron genoa anyway. Has a great interior, if you have the 2 cabin version, great layout. Have sailed many hours in it, if around 200 a good deal.
