Re: First boat advice - Mpls to Great Lakes

The Catalina is a great boat with a company still in business, you can get part, advise and help. Catalina also has the biggest owner group with chapters all over the world.
I would stay away from the Chrysler, not well built from what I have seen.
The O'Day is a wonderful boat I don't have personal experience but what I have heard is good, looks looks the layout is a 30 footer shrunk down.
I have been on a hunter 23.5 and it was too tender for me.
