This should be required reading for those considering an off shore cruise. In particular, the old thread on cruising with a Catalina 30 comes to mind. I sail a Catalina 27 and love my boat but this points to what can happen... Thanks for sharing and I am deeply sorry about your friend and his boat.

Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
