snader is on a distinguished road
I have a Catalina 320 and been lots of times in 15-20 feet seas in the coast of Chile. Winds above 30knots. I always felt safe. I know plenty of things can go wrong but hey, after all, it is part of sailing. I am confident enough that will make an offshore passage in march with 5 other boats. It will be a "controlled" situation. The thing that worries me more is the draining of the cockpit and the big companionway door. I am definitely will do some work there. Being alone offshore for long periods of time...not sure.
