I own a mono, but have chartered several cats. The mono is more fun to sail. But if I were going to live aboard for any length of time, I would choose a cat.

As others mentioned, a cat may be more demanding on your ground tackle--so upsize it. I've heard it said a cat has the accommodations of a mono half again it's length. That's a double edged sword, as it has most of the downsides of a mono half again it's length. (Except for draft)

I also read that book recently. I'm glad I didn't read it before getting some cruising experience--it might have put me off of cruising completely.
