I think the worst situation is when your wife slaps you on the dock.

Well, a cat will not roll so much, but man, they certainly will pitch.
You are warned.

Thanks for the link. We are going o th show in Miami in Feb. We also want to look at the new Tomcat.
If we go used it looks like the Gemini unless we can find a PDQ.

Good information. For what we want I think the Gemini is the ticket. Maybe the 105MC will drop in price now the legacy is now out .

we sold the Hunter and are looking to downsize to something for just the two of us..

for us, both the P42 and the Gemini were compromises for the two of us.

Hunter - stable and sails well in any weather - takes some wind to get her going, awesome aft berth, but the wife found the tub (aft) to be useless under way, and as bad at the dock. Even on the brightest sunniest days, it was often dark below. The vberth cabin was wasted space for the two of us, as was the main salon head, we used it as a wet locker. The freezer and fridge were basically ice boxes and if you wife is not 5'5" or better she could not use the freezer. Access to engine and generator were tough, nigh impossible underway. Cockpit can be made comfortable at anchor, but is crowded with more than two and sailing.

Gemini - almost full size fridge with separate freezer that any one can open, use and get to. systems are generally accessible, easily. The salon table and settees are as comfortable as any I have used, the queen berth and owners head were awesome and bright and comfortable, as good as it gets. Handles like a dream and presents very little windage, daggerboards have to be cranked from inside and need a ratchet handle, ugh. Captains console, cockpit and the swinging chair in the davits was to die for - I spent a lot of time there. Can't overload it, though and that takes discipline...

For me it would come down to what am I going to do with the boat...we were doers and sailors, not much for sitting in one spot, so the Hunter won out....but for 6 months in the islands, most of which would likely be light winds, day sails, shallow waters, many marinas to run to in bad weather and anchoring out...would be the Gemini. Either boat will get you across the stream and to the islands with some prudent sailing. In the heavy weather and seas, I felt the Hunter was heavier and better built.

Hope that helps, and I am sure I have missed something...
