I think it is very similar to the catalina 27 so the dimensions should be close enough. I'm still wiched nervous to do it myself though! If anyone wants to come see the possible carnage one of these weekends let me know!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
