I have the repress I believe. It was originally printed 2006 but reprinted in 2008 with updated info. The introduction
actually points out that the industry is in such a revolution that it'll probably be out of of date within a few short years. BUT... that being said. The book goes a long way in explaining the characteristics of a catamaran
and is a decent primer/overview on the qualities of a good Cat.
I've done a fair share or hunting and lurking around online for information and I've found the book a decent amalgamation of information I'd read or have learned online. Having it all together in the book has been a decent read and quite useful.
Not sure how useful it'll be in 2 years or so... but by then I hope to have a boat and be sailing.
