Re: What to look for in a new boat

Just wanted to chime in on a few points. In our location, finding a slip or mooring was harder than finding a boat, and significantly dictated our choices. We were on a waiting list for 3 years waiting for a slip. Then off season storage was another headache. Also don't forget that these costs can be significant and should be factored into your budgeting.

I would also like to say I have been very impressed with the level of support for our Catalina. Beyond the association, and owners forums, factory support for a 20+ year boat has been great. I went on their website and just did a quick question to support, about availability of a replacement part. Two days later Frank Butler was on the phone helping me find the part.

Good luck, and enjoy the process.
