Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42
IMHO the Jenn is a better looking boat but if you are living aboard I'd go for the Cat - that pullman cabin is a BIG improvement over a V-berth for a couple.
In terms of build quality I think it's a wash. A circumnavigation uses up a lot of boat - have the sails, rigging, engine etc. been redone since?
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
