I'll pay

No I'm not looking for anything for free, I'll pay fair price. I found a local loft with one listed but it had already sold.

I was dropping to much money into the PSC 25 (about a grand a week), hardly sustainable for my income. I blew through my budget in no time. I grossly underestimated cost and convienience of where to store the boat. If it was in my back yard and I had a shop with about a year it would have been a doable project but it wasn't. I sold it back in Sept/Oct and went travelling with work to save up for this Catalina. I have about the same in this boat right now as I did in the PSC and this one is almost ready to go except sails. Its not the perfect boat but it's livable and it'll get me down to the Bahamas and up and down the east coast until I can save for a more seaworthy design. I learned some good lessons with the PSC, albeit expensive ones haha. It was worth it. Brandon
