catalina 30 cruising

The two responses so far express my feelings. Part of me says go with the C30 part says look for a more seaworthy boat. Three boats that I keep going back to are; Cape Dory 30, Bristol 30 and Pearson 323. They can all be found for less than $35,000. But again for $35K I would have a newer better equipped C30. I was in a gale in the Bahamas for three days. A 45'' sailboat with Blackbeard''s diving. Almost everyone aboard (except the crew) were seasick. I didn''t get sick and kept on diving. But if I''d been crew on a smaller boat it would have been rough.
