Good luck and enjoy
Thanks again for the helpful information, everyone. We decided to pass on both the Catalina and the Tanzer and instead purchased a beautiful Hurley Silhouette we asked about in a former post. It's a solid boat, true to Lloyd's specs, with sails in great condition. The only care she needs is paint on the bottom and a general cleaning inside and out. We look forward to getting her water ready, and appreciate all the input you folks have given us since we joined SailNet. We'll post pictures of the boat and the cleaning process and continue to ask questions! Thanks!
I am sure you will be pleased with your purchase.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
