The center boat in the second raft is a VERY well kept but basically out-of-the-box Catalina 34 MKII. I've said before that I think that Catalina's redesign/tweak of the 34, 36, and 42 in the early 2000s was ingenious. Park an original 34 next to a MkII and you'll hardly believe they are essentially the same hull. Same with the others. We have at least 3 of the newer 34s in the club.
We swam everywhere, with water temperatures ranging from a chilly 63F to personally in 76, and heard reports of water temps into the 80s in Pendrell Sound, another part of Desolation known for warm water.
Wow, that C34 looks a lot bigger from above.
In those raft-up photos, it looks almost as though the boats are actually Med-moored. Does everybody just put down their own anchor and run their own lines ashore, then snug up next to each other? In these parts, a typical raft-up has a single anchor off the center boat, and everyone swings with the breeze.
