Hello,

Many early Catalina 30''s were equipped with that motor. The consensis seems to be that if you use the motor primarily for leaving / entereing the harbor, the engine is sufficient. If you use the engine for cruising when there is no wind, and / or plan on motoring long distances, like in the IWC, then it''s not sufficient.
