The New Gemini Catamaran - 3SUMs big sister

It's good they have Catalina building this boat. The problem is, they didn't consult me for my opinion and, I have opinions. Here is my recommendations for what they are worth:

  1. Make the engines easy to repair. You need 2. Similar to the PDQ. How about a couple outboards mounted midship that can be pulled up?
  2. Go back to the screecher. Furling spinnakers are the way to go.
  3. Stackpack. Drop the sail and go.
  4. Self tailing genoa.
  5. Mast dropping system similar to Telstar. Makes it easy to move the boat through locks and whatnot.
  6. Thruhull everything. Drilling into fiberglass doesn't cut it.
