I'm blown away by the amount of info available on this webiste! Thanks to all who've responded to my initial post regarding outfitting a Catalina 36 for 'across the pond' passagemaking. Now, back to the initial question(s).
What are her weak points in the bluewater/passagemaking arena?
What are the logical upgrades I can have done that will enhance her offshore capability while still retaining the good qualities I'll enjoy in coastal So Cal?
