Re: How do you use your boat

My boat is a Catalina 320 - the epitome of a production boat. I wish I could say I used her more, but the truth is that I probably sail about 20 - 25 day sails a year. I wouldn't even sail that many times if I weren't fortunate to live in the sunny south. (I sailed on New Years Eve - a great way to end 2012.) I am still hoping to get a couple weekend trips a year into the schedule, but the wife and kids aren't as fond of sailing as I am, so sailing vacations probably aren't in my future any time soon.

However, I see lots of boats in the marina that look like they haven't moved in months, or possibly years. So I figure that I'm doing OK, and that so far the capability of the boat is definitely not holding me back. If anyone out there wants to swap me for a Swan or a Super Maramu, I'm willing to consider it. But in the meantime, I think my Catalina is sufficient.
