Pearson vs. Catalina

Catalina makes a very good production coastal cruser. It isn''t full keel like your Pearson and you should think more about weather than you have to in your Pearson. A C34 is a fine boat and roomy. You would have more creature comforts than in your your boat. I think the Catalina is faster in less wind than your boat. Like I said it''s agood production boat the build quility is high (If it wasn''t Catalina wouldn''t still be building boats). Many other makers have long since gone the way of all the earth. If you want to cross oceans stay with your Pearson. If you want a roomy coastal cruser you might want to think hard about the Catalina. BTW I sail a Lancer. Couldn''t afford the Cat
