    You won't find many with a Warrant for a White Ensign also owning a catamaran.....

    Pretty sure the 'entitled' person only needs to be on board not an owner?

    In open ocean while observing whales, a cat passed within 1 meter of my bow. Was a charter ...

    Since then, I refer to these things as CATAMORONS. :-)

    You mean you weren’t keeping a lookout underway - sounds like the cat skipper taught you a little lesson on seamanship.

    Draggging anchors in the Caribbean is common, if a boat was anchored directly in front of us we would keep watch on it.

    I was overtaking a monohull a couple of years ago and was a a couple of boat lengths behind when she (the helmsperson) suddenly turned to port at 90 degrees and was now dead ahead of us and about to be t-boned. The look on the ladies face was priceless. I veered to starboard and passed behind her without breaking into a sweat,

    Since then I refer to these things as BOATS.

    Lovely, but were you keeping a lookout?
