Default Whats better in the rough Cat or Vee?

I picked up a copy of a magazine that I used to subscribe to.
Hotboat and I noticed they had several people give there
opinions on what they feel safer in. The majority picked the vee.

I am wondering if it has a relation to the size of the boats
they are comparing.

Please tell me your thoughts on what is better in the rough
a cat or a vee!

Its winter lets play!

Vees are better in rough fresh water

and Cats are better in rough salt water......

or is it the other way around?

I 'll have to check the latest boat company ads to be sure.

Now let me ask an even more generic, vague question. Which is "better"............ cold or hot?

That may be the single most intelligent response to a dumb question ever posted on this website........Of course that doesn't displace dumb responses to intelligent questions...
or dumb responses to dumb questions.....a phenomenon of which this website abounds.

Cold air for engines..hot air for sofa bound racers. I witnessed Team Yahoo aka Curtis Morris lap the F2 Fleet w/ a 36 Skater w/ the same power. JT called it the roughest race in his career in 2001. But what do I know?
