This is a polarized issue, or love/hate phenomenon in which you will get a wide range of responses on a public forum.

I have a cat and absolutely love it and I think it is a superior ride to a mono hull in most sea conditions (2-3 ft chop which is 90% of the time in the Gulf). Boats are always a give and take proposition, test drive one and spend sometime researching the design, and make sure it works for you. Feel free to pm with any questions. Remember the cat design has been around for hundreds of years and is a dominant nautical design for large racing sailboats.

The only 2 main drawbacks in my opinion are 1. cosmetic - they are ugly at first but you learn to appreciate their beauty and 2. When trolling at very low speeds the bow will produce the "cat sneeze".

Good Luck
