Several trips from SF to Monterey (and back ?) in a 22' Catalina???
Yo Da Man!!!
An experienced couple just died sailing a 33' Ranger from Half Moon bay to SF! The boat survived.[/QUOTE]

G'Day Mate,

Nope, only the downwind direction (to Monterey). That's what a trailer boat is good for, after all! And we did it in favorable wx conditions too. Don't know what happened to those folks in the Ranger, glad that it never got that bad with me.

Cheers,

Jim
