Re: Need new boat to accomodate old(er) body
I'm 68 and the last time I sailed was 1977 crossing the Alenuihaha channel between Maui and the Big Island. Scared me so much it's taken 35 yrs to work up my courage to try it again! Just kidding. I do want to buy a monohull 30' and liveaboard somewhere between Florida and North Carolina. Never considered a monohull but the shallow draft would be useful in and around the ICW. How do they compare in roominess on the inside to a monohull? TIA. Hank
Cats can be very roomy - that's one of the big selling points with the new type available now.
Tri's not so much unless they are huge. The amas in most don't have accommodation in them, only the rather skinny central hull.
For living aboard in sheltered water, a current style cat would be hard to beat - expensive though and dockage can be problematic due to the beam.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
