I recommend that you get a Catalina with the "standard rig," not the "tall rig" given the high winds in SF Bay. I strongly recommend the deeper fin keel versus the shallow wing keel for SF Bay, it will be stiffer and will go to windward better. I had a 1987 Catalina 30 Mark II for 8 years and I sailed as crew on a Catalina 34. I have sailed on SF Bay, but most of my sailing was racing on Lake Erie.
