I'm the average sailor...converted from a landlubber of course. While I was born with a love of the ocean it has evolved into a love of sailboats and other vessels that ply the open seas and connected waterways. I am probably like most of the people who (hopefully) will read our blog with the exception that we are now doing what we always dreamed of doing and I hope to help others do the same. I am NOT any of the following...a naval architect, a marine surveyor or connected commercially to any builder, distributor or boat sales organization. My opinions are generally my own, although influenced by many years of research.

  1. Most of the boats we see on your list are only monos, no cats?
    Although we cruised a 31′ Southern cross double ender for five years then a 37′ Tayana for 15 years before moving to Abaco twenty years ago. Loved those boats but nothing can beat the confort of a Cat.
