I've gotten my cruising cat on one hull before, and I didn't like it. I was singlehanding in blustery conditions, had it on autopilot and got distracted, and felt the boat start to lean. Oh ****. I put it back down and reefed.
Much, much, more suttle than beach the hull wakes (windward vs leeward), etc.

Never flown a hull on a larger cat...hope not to.
