I can't wait to get my Supercat 17s ready for this upcoming season. Never sailed a cat before. Currently restoring 2. What cat would you say would be most similar to the Supercat 17 speed-wise? How does it compare to a Hobie 16 or 18?
Thanks!

Dale, I grew up on KY Lake and my father owned a large boat yard there until a couple of years ago. Sadly the cat scene there is little to non-existent now.

A good place to get a comparison of relative performance would be the Small Catamaran Handicap Rating System (SCHRS). https://www.schrs.com/ratings.php

An SC17 rates 1.081 while an H-16 is 1.197 and an H-18 is 1.080 (higher is slower); as such, you should be very close to an 18.
