New from San Francisco Bay

Hello everyone...

I just ran across this forum and it looks like a great one.

My wife and I will be retiring in a couple years and will be purchasing a cruising catamaran. Before we retire we want to charter catamarans in different areas such as the Pacific Northwest, the Caribbean, Mexico, the South Pacific and perhaps the Mediterranean. The idea is to figure out just what type of catamaran we want to own for extended well as get some sea time under our belts.

Just thumbing through Multihull Magazine it seems there are plenty of boats to choose from.

I have read through a number of threads now and the people here seem nice and very knowledgeable. I look forward to chatting about cats.

Smooth sailin'

Mary and David

Aloha Mary and David,
Welcome aboard!! Hope you find what you're looking for. There are a lot of multihullers on the forum who'll probably be responding.
Kind Regards,
