Also, if one is doing something like a circumnavigation, should one encounter that terrible "perfect storm", on a multi, it is always comforting to think that should one capsize the vessel, at least she won't sink, and you have food and water available until rescue.
Same storm, same scenario and your monohull could sink.
What's the chance a storm that can roll a monohull and sink it does not destroy a catamaran? Does a cat become so stable upside down it becomes impervious the havoc above?
