David -

this is the direction I have been looking as well, but am at least 5 years away from it.

You might want to check out the following links (if you haven''t already)

http://www.catsailor.com/

http://www.2hulls.com/

http://www.yachtworld.com/themultihullsource/

http://multihullcompany.com/multihullcompany001.htm

Initially I was looking only at tri''s and then starting looking at boats that offered more in the way of creature comforts and that is when I started looking at the cats.

I would really like to see a forum page devoted to multihulls as their needs and issues arn''t always the same as monos

Hope this is of some use

elfexor,

You''re certainly right about the need for a sailnet forum dedicated to multihulls. After the recent debates regarding "wide ass sterns" speed and stability, it would appear the perfect sailboat is a catamaran! If a modern monohull won''t right herself, what''s the point of having one?

a,

The perfect sailing vessel in many types of weather is not a cat. While providing stability and roominess for short term voyages, takes a person who can handle one to go the distance. Many people cannot, even though I have met many people down-island who have lived and traveled on cats for years, raising their children on such.

The cat''s a different dog in this hunt. Be sure you have the resolve to do the training.

Best wishes,
MaryBeth
