Re: Catalina 42 ... Why not?
As a racer I was skeptical of Catalinas. However, I now own a Catalina 42 and I must say I'm impressed. I believe they are a solid, well built boats that sail better than I expected. I'd buy one again.
But what would you do with two of them??
I, too, think they'd be a great boat, though perhaps a pretty critical eye should be taken prior to an ocean crossing.
Lesser boats have done it, I'm sure...
