Hello! So Few Power Cats

Hi All, It's great to find a forum for cruisers. We live in Edmonton, Alberta. Not a likely place for cruisers but my parents lived on a sailing cat for 6 years and we just got hooked on the lifestyle!

I am surprised at how hard it is to find other cruisers with power catamarans. We have cruised the Bahamas for the last three winters and plan to cruise down to Venezuela. I am hoping to find others who have made this journey and learn from them. We did cruise north to the Saint Lawrence our first summer through the Erie Canal. Hopefully we will get to go back.

We have stored our boat up the river in/near Fort Myers hopefully we stay clear of all the hurricane traffic!

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to slide in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, screaming "HOLY **** what a ride!
