Hello Friends

I Import and dsitribute MiniCat, Tiwal, X-Cat and Takacat in Canada. When i started the business I looked at other brands such as Happy Cat, Smart Kat, Duckie, ... but MiniCat was the fear leader (and Tiwal was the only MonoHull) -- Anyways I wanted to get feedback from owners these other brands. What are the sailing characteristics of these other makes like?

Thanks!

ex-USSR inflatables

Just to get idea how looks like real diversity of inflatables. I have sailed some, but cannot compare them with Tornado or Nacra Inter 18. Rigid boats are much more fun (IMHO) for sail but PIA to travel, if you have not trailer. And I had not.
The main reason of inflatables in ex-USSR is ease of transportation by car, train or airplane. For example, we travelled with such boat from Russia to Ukraine by train in 2012 without any problems.
As concerns to Minicat, it looks too primitive by accepted standards. smile

Have the inflatable catamaran sailors started their season? Or still too cold where those are sailed?

Yes, certainly. First races in season are traditionally on 1st of May and around, because it is national holiday in Russia and Ukraine.
Here is the link to the forum, where the race schedule for 2017 in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine is discussed.

2017 races
