Hello Everyone!

Hello everyone, I have just stumbled across this great looking forum, and so here I am. I suppose the best way to introduce myself would be to say what kind of boat I have and where I am. So...

I own a 42ft Solaris Catamaran, Currently being refurbished in El Puerto de Santa Maria,Spain(I'll probably get into that in another post).

Anyway, I hope to have a good time here.

Kiekkokala

Welcome aboard Kiekkokala. There's plenty of discussion on cats on here. A few under construction that might even be finished before the end of the century!

Hi SkiprJohn, Could you point me towards the best place to post concerning the refurbishment of my boat, or should I just post in this thread?

Thanks Gord. That's a better answer than I'd have given.

Question Your Cat

Hi Kiekkokala

I am also new to this forum. I just happened across it while researching multihulls. I've been living aboard my 44' powerboat for 3 years (absolutely love it and will continue ) and have decided to get into sailing. My question now is whether to go mono or multi hull. I've been reading about multihulls. How do you like your cat? What are benefits and detriments? Do you bluewater sail? Do you live aboard?
