But look at the bright side . Both power and sail cats don't sink. Not true with monohulls.

You act like sinking is the worst thing that could happen!

Re: Cat Capsized off Ocean City

They still burn which is the number one cause of boat destruction.

I will take little initial stability and lots of secondary stability over lots of initial stability and no secondary stability any day. In comparison monohulls go over slowly and predictably, cats go unexpectedly and fast.

Not trying to start a mono vs multi debate. I like cats and have owned cats.

Either way, very sad for their families.
