Corsair 3600 Catamaran

Recently there is a USED CORSAIR 3600 catamaran on the market. Did anyone sailed one or heard abut them?

The deck clearance looks almost nonexistent.

It's not at the stern end of the cockpit I'm talking about. Look under just forward of the door in the pic I mentioned. It looks like the clearance about 12 inches to provide standing headroom in that area.
I know a guy who bought a (Corsair 3000?) cat. His boat had underdeck clearance in that area of about one foot.

Definite thumbs down from me, unless you really enjoy bridgedeck slamming.

Here the missing text:

I think that the small bridge deck clearance is the consequence of the passage just beyond the entrance door.

Bridgedeck clearance aside, I really don't like those sloping, curved decks. Anything dropped? Ker-plunk!

What if you put a small pod under like the snoogoose has would that help.
