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.
Sailing a Capri 25, cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for... Catalina Mainsheet Capri 25 Tech editor that's large (I mean at large).
