Wharram Tiki 38-46 - Experiences?

Hi everybody

I wonder if anybody in the forum has owned or at least sailed on a larger Wharram Tiki catamaran like the 38" or 46"?

How do they behave in heavy weather? What about hobby-horsing? Any experience with the Wharram Gaff Wingsail Schooner rigg?

Any links or other information would be appreciated.

I think about a a low cost extremly simple catamaran for long distance cruising. Having cruised and lived on a 38" mono for several years, the idea of a minimalistic boat seems rather appealing after experience in "repairing my way around the world"

Cheers Jan
