Re: Which boat? Shallow water
I've not sailed on the Catalina 25, but have on the O'Day 26... the O is certainly bigger, and roomier. However, the Cat 25s usually do better in our races... depends on your focus... Again, my vote is, see how the Chrysler suits you.
"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
