Re: 30' Tri - I know she ain't liveaboard...
Yea, I would not want a walkover in the PNW. You might want to look at the Gemini as they seem about the best smaller newish catamaran.
I did look at a few Gemini's (105mc mostly) and they're pretty well laid out, but I didn't think they'd quite fit the bill long term. I've heard they have a real nasty slap, and it's difficult to find them with twin diesels. And for $100,000, I think I'd rather spend more for a slightly used Lagoon (the charter boats I've seen have been immaculate) and get the added space and higher bridgedeck.
