My recommendation would be to start out with a Hobie 18. It's a much more forgiving platform to learn on than a Tiger. Once you have some experience sailing, trapping, righting then move up.

If you still want to start with a Tiger I have a 2005 for sale in Boise Idaho.

Cheers.

Also worth looking at the H16. A classic. Fast and fun.

I would second the H-18 for a first catamaran... at a crew weight of almost 400# I think an 18 would serve you better... the only "disadvantage" I can think of is having to raise the dagger boards... but to me an 18 is a much fun/faster more forgiving boat :-)
