I think the problem with your calculation is that you are entering the draft of the keel; not the hull draft. For a Catalina 42 the hull draft should be somewhere in the range of 1-2 feet and that would give an AVS result somewhre in the 118-130 deg range.

Use the following page for entering numbers; remember to use hull draft not keel draft:
