catalina 30 cruising

We had some cruising buddies who were promanent players and written about extensively by their friends who buddy cruised with them from San Francisco, to Fort La DE DE, Fl.They did it in a C-30
and wrote a book about it which was published about 3 years ago. West Marine carried it.
In a nut shell, they really only needed to add to the battery bank and get a couple of solar panels. They had an Alder/Barber refrig. Also an Auto Pilot, plus othe goodies which they found they did not need.
To top it off they were not experienced sailors.
