i'm very interested in your comment about this region favoring the shallow cats. i'm much in the same boat
as bruce. can't wait to be on my floating apt with all the amenities. i initially was looking at the 34' american tug, and others like it for their sea worthiness, and overall rugged, functional impression i get from them. but the cat has some real advantages in upper space and fuel
efficiency. could it's accessing shallow areas unreachable by semi-displacement hulls be really be important? now, i will not be doing any exploring, just light fishing
just a few miles out, and parked in the marina on any day less that optimum with occasional 100-200 trips to other islands. there doesn't appear to be a lot of yacht friendly ports
in PH. should that make the choice of a cat all the more important?
