Re: Looking to get first boat
As far as I know my Catalina 25 was never on a trailer. I bought it from the original owner and have all of the original paperwork and it doesn't look like they ever owned a trailer. We kept it on a slip and I personally see that as essential to allow for regular sailing.
Our motor is a Tohatsu/Nissan 9.8 with electric push button start. This is a common feature.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
