I'm really enjoying this thread, there is very little of the usual mono vs cat bunfighting.
I do agree that with such a budget
, a good cat in good condition might take some finding, getting a good mono would be easier. But it's worth trying, IMO.[/QUOTE]
We will be ¨cash¨ buyers when the time comes
! I dont want to risk going to high in case we need a reserve for an unforseen problem at a later date! Am just wondering what it would be like to cross the Atlantic in a 38-40ft 25-30year old CAT as there are several for sale
(we are in southern Spain), I met a couple in Gibraltar
last week who have just done it and said it was fine, the bits ive read here suggest the CAT may not be as solid as the Mono on that type of journey? If so then that would suggest buying
a CAT already in the Caribean as there would be little point in buying
the Mono just for the crossing!
