Thank-you -- great suggestions, great information!
We'll put 'multihull demo days' on the list. My buddy and I will probably do a charter -- somewhere -- before then. I have to make a trip to Maine and might stop at MaineCat.
The Gemini has an awful lot going for it. While our bias is for something slightly larger, the fact that there are so many of them is a big plus.
Rebuilding boats is what we do for fun. We've rehabbed a Wherry, a 'classic glass' Rhodes, other small boats and a 'gut and refit' of a 35' Sportfish.
I don't think we'd want something new. A Cat in need of TLC would be more 'up our alley'. I wouldn't claim that we can match 'Gunboat's' finish level, but over the years, we've gotten pretty good with wood and 'glass.
Nautig, thanks for your comments. If anyone wants to chime in with older Cat suggestions 35' to 42' -- I will certainly appreciate it.
