Re: Gemini 105 Catamaran - Is this the "right" craft??
While boats like the Gemini have a range of virtues, if one of your goals is learning to sail well, cruising cats make a very poor platform for that purpose. The most ideal boats to learn to sail on are boats which provide a lot of feel and feedback. This helps by providing a novice with a wealth of information about what is happening and so helps them learn much more quickly. I understand that your wife does not like to heel, but heeling is but one important clue as to what is happening with the boat that flattens the learning curve.
