Re: Sail Cat vs. Power/Trawler Cat
Lots of folks with experience on both power and sail boats. Sort of a narrow field, if they both need to be multi-hulls.
I think how much one chooses to sail in the Caribbean is a matter of time and patience. Itís not a certainty that youíll motor often, unless you choose to. If youíre retired, you can always choose a better sailing window.
I think this is just going to come down to personal preference for mode of travel. Personally, beyond preferring to sail, I do like the redundancy of propulsion. I suppose most power cats have two motors. I guess one other thought is the aggravation/limitation associated with needing fuel. Especially in the islands, where supplies can be highly variable in cost and quality.
