Re: Catalina 22's and trailer sailing generally

It's a solid little boat. A lot of things would have to go wrong to sink one. Letting the main out pops it right back up, and the positioning of the main sheet makes it easy to leave it uncleated to ride the gusts accordingly in frisky weather. I've only put the crib boards in on my boat once, and that was in 30 kts (motoring on bare poles).

I would feel much, much safer sailing my boat in 25kts than towing it with a vehicle that's not rated for its weight.
