Could be just perfect.. set her up as you want.. new sails and Bobs your uncle..
I bought that boat, spent the last 6 months updating her. single Yamaha 9.9 x long high thrust, B&G wind, depth, speed, autopilot, radar and AIS. bit of a re-wire. rubbed down and copper coated. just started sailing her and I have to say very impressed.

Kind of tired of seeing people on this forum bash other people's dreams. If you don't think the dream is reasonable just say why, minus the sarcasm. I'm pretty sure this person is looking for a solution, or at least some education, not a lashing. I'm saying this to all of you, you know who you are. This forum would be waaaayyyyyy better without that kind of behavior.

Re: (Extremely) low Budget Cataraman for Singelhanded Crusing

I knew it was coming. Every time I read a post about buying a catamaran(the man wants a catamaran) there will be several posts about buying a monohull. I haven't read CF for a while and things haven't changed. Funny.

Many years later, I'm still out here, cruising my Gemini catamaran all over the place. However, thinking that you can buy any boat for a few thousand dollars, and sail it around, even a Gemini, is a fools errand........

And where are you cruising exactly......???

You sail in the protected waters of the ICW, Thats not open ocean,

I sail my Gemini 105 MC in Bass Strait, Australia,
Which is jammed between the Southern Ocean and the Southern Ocean, Tasman Sea,
Its also crossed the Pacific Ocean,
