Catalina, Beneteau, or What ?

I own a Beneteau 361 and I am disappointed with the worksmanship of the boat. This might be something you want to think about when you look at them. They are very loud under power, in mast furling systems are very picky about how they come out, the sterns drag in the water under power, and many other grievances. The interior wiring is messy, and it does not feel like a solid overall boat. You might consider looking at a smaller, older Tartan or Island Packet.
