Hmm, if you are interested in my offshore experience, I will be happy to point you to the many threads here, cruisers forum, or you can read Mainsheet which is the Catalina Owners Publication.

By reading your first post, which did not have a lot of information in it, I was under the assumption that you did not know much about sailing. That is why I posted what I did. I believe Giu was under the same impression... as were other members. As such, we responded the way that we did. It was a nice response to the information provided. It was not meant to be condescending. The only person doing the attacking here is you. You could have simply said that you did have sailing experience, where you wanted to go, a little background, etc... and it would go a LONG WAY to helping us give you good information back.

You are welcome to stick around, or you can go. But if you stick around you can be a lot more friendly, period.
