Being a mono-hull sailor about to make the jump over to a catamaran
, I must say that all that fiberglass
seems like a daunting task to maintain. My last boat was a Bavaria
40 Ocean, but now I'll probably buy a cat in the 38-44 ft range. The cat I buy will either be new or less than 5 years old.
I'm planning a circumnavigation
, but the idea is to see the places I go to and not to be stuck doing maintenance
chores more than strictly necessary. With this I mean, keeping the cat looking nice and new with the appliances
on board in working order.
I'm interested in hearing how much time, on an average, cat owners spend on maintaining their boats.
I'm also interested in hearing about the costs.
Naturally it would also be nice if some mono-hullers threw in their opinions.
