What if Kelaerin had been a catamaran??

We have all been reading about Kelaerin- the boat swamped and now found in the Pacific - has been a topic of conversation. If you had not seen the stories check it out here - https://www.cruisingworld.com/page-5...e072618#page-6

Another topic is the blue water worthiness of 35-50 ft production cats.

Facts set, waves and weather remaining the same ... what would have happened if Kelaerin was a cat?

Sometimes no matter what type vessel one is on the Weather/Ocean. Will win regardless, not even longtime mariners survive these type events.

Because I donít want yet another mono vs Cat thread.
Iíll tell you the same thing that I believe I said the last time this was asked.
We donít even know for sure what happened, how in the world could we extrapolate that to a completely different design.
Iíd even say we donít know what would have happened if the exact same wave struck the same boat three different times, itís likely you would have three different results.

So what your asking is, is a Cat as or more seaworthy than a Mono, and we arenít going down that rat hole, I or another Mod will close the thread if it starts heading there.
We just donít need that.
