Re: Gemini Catamaran - Best Years & Custom Trailer?

I suggest you do the looking and then contact your broker to make the purchase arrangements, protecting the buyer, you. That's what We did and it worked out really well. Don't be afraid of making an offer and do some haggling. Remember spider cracking on a Gemini is not really a big problem it's the norm.

Nope.

They all have it.

It's a "gem thing" but I don't think we are really alone.

Re: Gemini Catamaran - Best Years & Custom Trailer?

Not really spider cracking is common on all Gemini's since the gelcoat is thick.
Old bad looking SS hinges and other deck hardwear and engine hours over 60 hours a year are points to haggle over as well as years on the rigging and rigging ropes. Canvas cockpit enclosures are really nice and add value if there in good condition.

I'm out of here going for a sunset sail
