I continue to be stunned by how few cats there are available compared to monos - and therefore (at least in part), how cheap
monos look compared to cats. My wife won't go unless it's flat, so I'm still looking for a cat.
Kevingy - I have the opposite problem. Both the admiral and I are relatively short. Problems arrise in the galley
for instance when microwaves and cupboards are positioned so high that she would require a stool to access them. Not really a good plan when dealing with hot liquids in a bit of a chop.
re the availability of good cats. it is my belief that a good portion of that is just that there are far fewer cats in the world but another consideration is that more and more folks are realizing the cat is just a better tool for the job. Especially when one considers that for cruising you are going to be at anchor
at least 10 times as often as you will be sailing. People joke about condomarans but condos are comfie to live in basements are not.
