One of the things you will come to accept is thread drift and differing opinions. It is part of the mosaic of CF and of the internet. Can't stifle opinions and when you disagree with someone else's point of view, you are welcome to debate within the guidelines of the forum.

Trying to dictate who says what is pretty much gonna be frustrating.

If you see an off topic or rude response you should hit the report button and let the mods know about it. They get paid fabulous salaries to stop the kids from fighting.
I bet the salary is almost as glorious as mine on RS25.com and BRZPost.com! I think becoming a moderator is punishment for spending too much time on the site.

Re: Characteristics of a Circumnavigating Cat

I realise that this thread is dead and buried, but to those interested, I just bought a new boat Due to the area I will be cruising in: Norway, Svalbard, Iceland, Greenland, I bought an Ovni 435.

I did a lot of thinking and talking to people with cats up here, and decided against a cat due to the difficulty of keeping them warm and dry. It is of course possible, but it takes a lot more energy than it does with an insulated monohull.

I'll be casting off on a new circumnavigation in 2017 with the Ovni, but until then will be exploring the pond outside my door (North Sea) Funny to think that when I cast off, 9 years will have passed since I set sail with the cat.

Here's a little video I put together from that trip:

Re: Characteristics of a Circumnavigating Cat

Andreas is one of a very rare breed of cat: A Cat who changes to a Half Cat later in life.

Andreas, there is another saying: "You lucky dog!" = "This is good, admirable, enviable." or "I wish I could do that!"

Truly, I think it is great that you get to do what you are doing. I like both monos and cats and an Ovni 43 is one of my dream boats.

Bon Voyage!

Re: Characteristics of a Circumnavigating Cat

You said you could go anywhere anyday in a ovni..
Before you bought the cat ☺

What more insulated boats did you look at this time
