Multihull Cruiser

Greetings all,
I'm new to the forum although have followed threads on many occassions when researching the web. I live aboard our 45ft Catana Catamaran 'Chaotic Harmony' and am into my third year of meandering around the Pacific with my partner Catherine and three kids - Estelle, Baden and Fletcher - and two cats. Life is full and busy but I am in the process of further researching Multihull Seamanship and ownership issues so if any forum members have any ideas or questions then feel free to fly them my way. I am a lifelong multihull sailor. Chaotic Harmony is my fifth offshore multihull and I am never not learning!
I look forward to participating in the various forums.
Cheers
Gavin leSueur

Welcome Gavin,
Any input would be appreciated. I have read a couple of your books and have thoroughly perused your Multihull Seamanship.
For quite a while I lived just up the road from you at Eden ( I used to be a professional fisherman out of Twofold bay) and used to visit Mallacoota fairly frequently. Do you still keep in touch with a surfing mate of mine, Grahame Nelson?
