"Have you actually had one?"
Back in the 60's I had a 45ft cold molded Hedly Nichol Voyager try built in then British Honduras , now Belize
Cats for coastal , trys for offshore was the rule then , as the ride is so much better ,
Did a couple of years sailing summers to New England and winters in St Thomas , via Bermuda.
Only rides on motor boat cats has been in sheltered waters , but behind St Barts I helped a number turn and anchor cats into the swells as beam too it was difficult to hang on with both hands. Most were 45 -60 ft .
