Thanks for the advice
Would like to thank everyone for the advice you have offered. you may remember I wrote a couple of months ago (advice on a cruising boat) well we decided on a 1993 Catalina 42 2 cabin wing keel. for our destinations east coast,Keys,Bahamas,Virgins I think she will serve us well. if we decide to go farther we may down size a bit but just this coarse could take us years.
