Excellent source of Cat info

Great info site. We read this and many other acticles when researching the descion to buy a catamaran.

It amazes me that many people still belive that current (properly built) catamarans are unsafe structurally and poor sailers. As the article points out early catamarans had issues related to design, but newer catamarans have benfitted by advanced engineering and unrestricted design considerations.

Also the article does a good job of point out some of the differences between the leaner and the cat.

Love my cat and will never go back!
