Thanks everyone, I am continuing to read the replies to this thread, and I agree with you guys that dgz3's post was excellent. I've been taking it all in and learning
as much as we can.
We've also opened the door to monohulls now. We'd still prefer a cat, but there are a lot more monohulls that have a lot for the price
. Our financial picture is a bit fluid, so we are weighing our options. But I don't want to turn this into a mono vs cat thread, I've read all those and know the plusses and minuses of each.
