Space, space, space. Everywhere. This was a vacation so the number one criteria for us was comfort and space. There is really no comparison in terms of comfort between the two. We are charting a mono in a few weeks in Grenada but primarily because we want to save money - otherwise we would have chartered a cat.

As to purchase for our long term plans... we are not opposed to a mono. So when the time comes we will make a decision based on our purchasing power at the time. If we can comfortably afford the Outremer 5X or the St Francis 50MKII, we will definitely buy that. If we need to get something cheaper, then a number of Monos will enter the equation.

Thanks for reading.
