I've owned a Wave since 2001 and I'm looking for a boat that will sail better in lighter wind, which you often find on a lake. I have heard that the A-cat might sail better in a lake vs the ocean or harbor.
Being use to the Wave I wonder how much of a difference the A-cat would be? Any discussion of this would be appreciated. I don't want to buy a catamaran that would scare the heck out of me, and, if anyone knows of a light single-handed cat other than the A-cat, I'd like to hear about that too.
One last thing, when checking on the internet for prices, A-cats seem to be $7K and up, often without a trailer. Are there any A-cats, maybe older ones, that would be for sale cheaper?
I owned an older A class: a 2001 Boyer Mk 4. It was already outmoded when I bought it in 2006, but it was a great boat for farting around on Lake Lanier and it was pretty tough for an A class. It would fly a hull in 5 mph wind. An older Boyer would require more TLC than your Wave and is more technical, but it's not rocket science.
I had a 4.3 and it it a fast boat and will give u a chance to learn new snuffer system that all the new boats have. OH and I bought for $3000, keep it three years and sold it for exactly what I paid for it!!!!!
