Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42
We placed an offer on the Catalina and the owner accepted. It's in better overall shape, even for an older boat, and it just has a nicer feel inside.... more homey. The engine has about 3300 hrs compared to 6900 on the Jeanneau. It's exciting but I will miss the Cal. I don't think the Catalina will be as fun to sail. It's a floating motorhome.
Congrats. The Cat isn't meant to be a race boat but it slips right along (PHRF is 96) and is very comfortable on deck and below.
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.
