101 reasons why monos are better than multis...

Multi lovers put their case with much passion. Makes me wonder what a thread where mono lovers put their case with similar passion might look like.
And of course I would like to restrict contributors to this thread to mono lovers.
So here goes...
001 Monos have analog stability (as opposed to digital, 0 or 1).
002 You can bring everything that your wife likes
003 You can annoy multi owners by doing nothing.
004 Your engine will push against wind, current and chop.
005 You can carry enough fuel.
006 Beauty is not just in the eye of the beholder.
Any more?

011 A Mono looks like a boat.
012 A Mono doesn't look like a floating Condo or an RV.
013 The most stable angle of flotation for a Mono is not upside down
014 Mono owners do not argue about how heavy their boat is.
015 You do not need a chip on your shoulder to be installed when buying a Mono.
016 Mono owners meet more Mermaids
017 Mono owners are not so insecure about their choice of vessel - nor about the opinions of others.
018 Monos are safer

Exactly why are we doing this thread?
Catamaran and trimaran owners can come up with as many goofy reasons to like their boats as monohullers.
If you like monohulls fine, if you like multihulls fine.
Give it a rest.

20 - You don't have to decide between galley up and galley down
21 - 99% of the time the rafting party (and the mess) will be on the neighbors cat

I see it as fun as well. I'm not trying to ruffle anyones feathers.

22...Monos look more macho going to weather...all heeled over with spray everywhere and people clinging for their lives on a sloped deck. Real men sail monos.

Relax, it is great that people are happy with their boats and enjoy talking about them.

As a long-time tri sailor and relatively recent monohuller (who still loves both)...

24. I can get away with carrying a lot more junk!

Hmm, after only 24 reasons we've had some variation of "They look nice" 4 times, and "they carry heaps of junk" at least twice. 101 looks like being a bit of a struggle...
