Now, back to the original questions.
What are her (C36) weak points in the bluewater/passagemaking arena? What are the logical upgrades I can have done that will enhance her (C36) offshore capability while still retaining the good qualities I'll enjoy in coastal So Cal?
Thanks again in advance!
Mike: I love Catalinas... I am a tech editor for them. But forst let me ask: WHat do you define as offshore and passagemaking? How many weeks at sea and how many days/weeks from the closest land mass?
