Feels like sleeping quarters instead of the otherwise "tube" berth (going in for another MRI tonite). ; )
Sounds worth a look.

Thanks for all the replies! I looked at the Gemini last year at the Miami boat show, and talked to Tony Smith there also. It is a nice boat, but I feel (perhaps wrongly) that it would be better to buy a more "substantial" boat. At present the top contenders are a PDQ 36, Prout 38 (new generation), and a Lagoon TPI 37. These three seem to all have similarities that apeal to me. I will be sailing in the Bahamas this spring on my Pearson 323 and will try to get on board a few cats if the opportunity arises. The purchase timeframe loks to be fall of '09, pending what the whole economy is doing, and the value of the Canuck buck.

Look at the Catalac 10M for sale in Florida, it has new sail drives. It's a blue water boat manufactured in England and sailed to America. These boats aren't well known in North America as relatively few were sailed here. A comment made by a surveyor this year said it best. A Catalac is to catamarans what a Hinckley is to monohulls. Solid GRP hull boats with coring only in the foredeck, built like battleships and although 20 years have passed since they have been out of production, just about all of them (over 600) are still sailing.

Check my website for data on Catalac models.
