One look at the Dashew videos, reading Dashew's books and web site, a visit to NZ to talk to the builders or to be on an FPB in rough weather is enough to convince me why I would never consider a cat. For the interested, pull up the pilot boat YOUTUBE videos from Scotland and the North Sea to get a feeling as to a pilot boat's near invincibility on the water. Never ever would you see a cat put to these tests and survive.
