I do respect his opinions very much always have. Always will. As I do yours. As I said I was not trying to impugn CDs reputation at all, not my intent. I think he is somewhat proud (biased) as we all are about the boats we own. I knew he didnt work for Catalina as it would be hard for him to be a moderator here. He has always been fair and impartial and I enjoy reading him more than most of the others because he makes sense. He has strong feelings about his boat to the point he is the technical editor for the 400 catalina, and I think that is somewhat why he was/ is so passionate with his opinion. I love that he has involved his family in his passion and his dream. He truly is living his dreram. CD obviously should appear on Grill Masters on the Food Channel though.
People who boats for cruising with children may find features which are more important than a couple cruising.
I thought he was off base comparing Sabres and Catalinas, thats all. Now if CD wanted a true challenge with a Sabre he would challange the 42 to see which boat could "wear" the most grills. I think Catalinas would win hands down.
Brian no offense intended. You are one of my favorites here. BTW If you ever come up to the Chesapeake I sure a grill cookoff could be arranged between you, Shawn (T37chef), and I.
