I didn't think of you as prone to understatement!A Laser will a bit cramped for two people
Life-long keelboat and dinghy sailer. Had spent literally zero minutes near a catamaran doing its thing, until about a month ago when I did chaseboat for a Hobie 18 in a 15-mile race that got about 5 miles offshore in Monterey Bay. My gosh that thing had incredibly easy speed. Now I understand...I would also consider a "beachcat" as there are some simple rigs out there like a Prindle 16. Maybe not this one as it looks a little beat, but food for thought..
