I have a rather large screacher I roll out when approached by another cat with questionable intentions, and was lucky enough to embarrass a not-so-well sailed Catana 38 on a broad reach, but that had to be a once in a lifetime experience. Having said that I'm probably going to be hunted down by every Catana on the Chesapeake Bay.

You're a marked man, Sandy. You can run, but you can't hide!

My two cents worth. I am an old salt with wide coastal sailing experience east and west. small boat big boat sail and power including 10yrs multi hull owner. I follow boat design closely and can be quite critical and opinonated.I sailed a 1994 34ft Gemini just pre newer model(105 ?) I used the boat for two weeks in northwest waters. In my opinion the boat is neither fast, good looking, or superbly built. But dame if it wasn't a great gunkholer and easy to handle and live with. And not too bad a sea boat for its type. Two annoying points- You have to go below to raise and lower boards-the inner forestay hangs the jenny every time you tack

Yeah, having been recently introduced to the rowdy wonders of You-Tube by our youngsters, I’ve been entertained by that clip and several similar sailing ones… My dinghy probably has more comfy cruising accommodations… Guess I should have been clearer… admittedly my old Ford truck and a F1 car share common properties of having four tires and a steering wheel, but all the exotic machinations and engineering it takes to turn a competitive lap at Monte Carlo are of little value for hauling my grandson’s boogie-board to the beach… something the ol'Ford does with quiet alacrity…

Thanks HUD, I was sipping a cup of hot tea when I saw your last post; Now my keyboard is soaking wet and the inside of my nose is burned. I hope YOU'RE happy.
