Selkirk, you're forgiven, now let us continue to be lazy and call our boats cat's.
Seawinds make excellent boats and liveaboards. I went with my Gemini for several reasons, all design related (vs cost).
Climbing out of the cockpit to go forward, I didn't like the SW, the Gem's more open.
Side decks are narrower on a SW.
I'm really opposed to the twin outboards in wells, they just don't make the amps, and require gas vs diesel.
Beam was too much to ever get a normal slip, and cat slips cost too much on a continuous basis.
The fridge is electric only, and in the master cabin.
Those were my notes from the tour at the boat show.
They (SW) are faster, and IMHO better built than the Gemini's.
BTW, my Gemini has never slapped in harbor - I have no idea where that comes from.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
