Who wants to see a Catalina Catamaran?

Once a novelty, it seems as though these catamaran things aren't going away. However, why should they be the sole territory of European designer/builders (who quite obviously have very questionable taste when it comes to yacht asthetics)?

It seems to me that Catalina could make quite a nice catamaran if they wanted to, and that the "sporty yet classic" Catalina style would translate well to a multi-hull. Better yet, they could probably build something of a decent size that wouldn't cost a million dollars.

Any thoughts?

If Catalina made a catamaran, CD would use the bridgedeck to put a big bbq there...

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.

I thought a Catalina catamaran was two Catalina's tied to either side of a finger pier.
