    That's a plausible explanation; it makes sense.

    A lot of charter boats in the Caribbean are cats.

    I helped a friend deliver a Sunreef 74 from Antigua to Barcelona the year before last.

    I got fed up with bbq steaks, ice cream two showers a day and didn't have time to watch all the movies on the big screen only cabin......

    we were lucky enough to be invited onto a cat to cruise the bvi's I couldnt recommend them highly enough , as said above horses for courses and cats are the horse for this , my friend a mono lover has just come back from croatia where they chartered a cat and had similar experience . However back home we have cruised west coast scotland for umpteen years keeping my boat on upper clyde and the many disadvantages of a cat in this location I would thoroughly recommend a mono , even if I had won the lottery .
    If you think cats cant beat try a racey one or a performance beach cat

    How did it sail? They look like they might be slug like.

    Average i suppose for a slug with a 140 foot mast and a cruising chute the size of a minor planet.

    Passage plan at 9 knots if you want to take it easy and not break anything.

    So they actually work!? Amazing for something with the proportions of a house. The mast doesn't look that big from the pictures, I wonder if it was a special.
