Wink Isle of Wight Greetings from a Newbie

Hello shipmates, actually we are currently boatless.
I ran a Charter Company in Tortola BVI's but am now back on the Isle of Wight until going out to SE Asia in the hope of buying a Sailing Cat'.
All of my previous boats have been mono hulls and while I like an uncluttered flush deck (I lived aboard one for over 2 years), for living in the Tropics I like the space a Cat can offer and as we have don't plan any more ocean passages flipping over is not such an issue. I also like the idea of having a galley in the main saloon instead of having to go below like a mole...Visited the Southampton Boat Show last Saturday, boy there are certainly some beauties on the market but some are hellishly expensive.

Anyway, Cheers and Smooth Sailing.
