Very cool Bryce. Love your pic. I have the 355 chartered all this weekend. 16-18 MPH winds forecasted. Trust me. This is not a rip on Catalina thread. I will try and get more speed from her this weekend. She is a charter boat. Could the sails be that stretched? maybe. Bottom is clean Yes. Max speed in MPH was never over 5.4 MPH even with the wind almost over powering the boat. I could not believe it as well. Boat felt like it was dragging a chute. Going to sail with a video camera this weekend. Hoping to see some blue and gray whales.
