Cal vs Catalina vs Hunter, etc...
Ok, I'm probably asking a lot, but I'm trying to get familar with the cruisers, and I don't quite have a handle on all the models. There are many new Hunters including 26, 32.6, 36 and up at my dock on Kerr Lake. Obviously I've seen a number of Catalinas as well, certainly beautiful boats.
I'm less familar with the Cal boats - and what I'm looking for is a very general description of how these boats contrast each other.
I'm a J/24 sailor, and I like the speed of course, but my wife hates it at this point, and I'm looking for something the extended family can enjoy, so I'd need something more comfortable.
Anyone up for taking a stab at dissecting the differences between these manufacturers and what their design goals may have been?
