    I see you haven't posted anything on these forums since Sept 16, 2015. Did you ultimately purchase a cat? If so, which one and why?

    We are in Annapolis. While taking a dinghy tour of the bay we passed by a P445 named "Madness". Looks very well kept. Is the owner active on these or other forums?
