Catalina 380

I currently own a 1990 Catalina 22...fairly happy with performance, however, Catalina (the factory in CA.) SUCKS!! I ordered a slide-hatch and it took 2 months to receive it here in Florida after their rep assured me it was in stock and ready to ship via UPS. After the long wait, the thing arrived poorly packaged and poorly finished. The inside finish was actually hand painted with a brush and the laid glass looked like it was done either on a "Friday" or "Monday".

First and last time I''ll purchase a Catalina!

I did not know Catalina''s are that bad. I will have to hear more before I decide. I do think that the Catalina 380 sails quite well. I get this from an couple of informal races with them.

New boats in general are not a good deal however.
