Thank you for the feed back.
To give you a bit more insight I do a lot of fishing
with the "crew" I always thought that Cats and tri's were going to be out of my price
range until recently when the sale
of my 50 Morgan became a reality and just by chance I stumbled upon a Gemini
Cat that set this inquiry in motion. I was quit amazed at the VAST usable livable area, ease of sail. I easily single anded this vessel.
With my past boats I have bought them and not done much customizing, now I am looking at getting something a little bit older and customizing it to fit my needs not worrying about how it will affect the re-sale of the vessel but rather making the until into someting I will be happy with and not just settling with.
I have never been a traditional sailor and can honestly say that now I have had a touch of speed added to my boating
experience I will not go back to a hull
that creeps across the water
, however I do not have intrest in a power boat
Like just about every one else on this board I would like to cut the lines and live aboard
sailing from one destination
to another but realistically speaking I sail around the Carrib and Florida
, I will never cross the Atlantic or the Pacific unless I truly get lost
.. I need something with a low draft
, now that I know it can be had - a cockpit
that could be enclosed with screen
and or plastic windows would be amazing during the rains or the clouds of bugs that drop by.
I do not play with safety
so it would be nice to have an Arch to mount my electronics
I am pretty much sold
on the Cat idea, however I was confused about the tri's difference.
It is amazing how little I know about these boats but with this board's search engine
and your replies I am learning
I am now looking into over all width of Cats to ensure my slip will accomidate.
