    1. What is the difference between a catamaran and a real sailboat?
      A catamaran has two hulls instead of one, the result is a more stable ride. It's like comparing a Rolls Royce to a Dune Buggy.
    2. Will I get seasick?
      Since catamarans are more stable, most people don't have any problems. However, if you are very susceptible to sickness, you may want to take seasick pills or wear a patch.
    3. Will I get wet?
      If you're outside on the trampolines, there is a pretty good chance you'll get wet.  If you really don't want to get wet, you can stay in the cabin.  With a 360 degree view, you won't miss a single thing.
    4. How fast does the Adventure Cat 2 go?
      Under sail, the average speed is 8-12 knots (approximately 9-13 MPH).
