Hmmmm, I'm no naval architect but my understanding is that such a conversion doesn't work too well since the hull will not have the right shape/weight/etc. In any case I'd think it would make more sense to convert to a tri than to reproduce your current hull to make a catamaran.

Unless you meant cat boat instead of catamaran, in which case, nevermind.

I can't of a better way than selling the Mono & purchasing a Cat? Art.

First of all YOU have to convert - from being a monohull sailor.

If what you're sailing now is a kayak, the conversion might work.

There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

WHAT!?!

I think stlcat was right. I think a tri would be the most plausible of the two bleak prospects. A monohull is designed so differently then cats.

Good luck if you decide to persue this. If you do proceed, please keep us updated and post pics/plans.

You'd be better off selling the monohull and getting a purpose built cat...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
