Re: Catamaran or Monohull- which is best?
For the most part, multihulls do not tip over; people tip them over!
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.
You are talking hypothetically. You might be right, but I’d like to see the statistics before staking a position. Meanwhile the discussion is about preferences and opinions, which is fine. The discussion might be pretty dull if everything were black and white.
