Catalina 42

Check out the 3 cabin Catalina 42. It has sailed around the world more times than any sailboat. Plenty of room and your wife will love it.

My guess is that you have a catalina 42 and are somewhat biased in your opinion, especially given some of your other posts.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Not True. Mine has the LEAD keel 8ft draft.

Eh??? I love Catalinas, but that comment about sailing around the world is absolutely not true. I also do not believ eit is the right boat for sailing around the world in... at all. However, the wife will love it. The 2 cabin pullman is probably my preference though.

As my pennance for slandering your keel, I post the following link that proves both that the First 456 can you get places fast and that you can hang on the top of the mast like a madman even while flying a spinnaker:

Just bought a Slocum 43. Could you drop me a line? I'd like to compare notes.

Regards.

The perfect blue water cruiser

A few years ago, John Holtrop, a sailboat designer did some work on a method of selecting sailboats on the basis of "fuzzy logic", and he produced a set of spreadsheets to find good cruising sailboats.

The spreadsheets contain a searchable database of over 1280 different sailboats, including all their design parameters. You can select one make and model of boat and search for other boats that are similar in terms of handling and performance to the one you select.

This is very useful if you have your heart set on say a Jeanneau 40 and can't find any good ones around. You can go into these spreadsheets and find several other boats that are very similar to the Jeanneau in performance and handling.

I've made a short screencast video at sailingmates.com showing how to download and set up these spreadsheets. You'll also see how to use the spreadsheets to uncover other boats that may work for you.

There's also a series of virtual boats in the spreadsheets, including the Ideal Cruising World Boat, the Optimal Blue Water Cruiser and the Ocean Cruising Club Ideal Cruising Yacht. You can use these boats as your "template" boat and find all the boats in the database that are similar to tthese in handling and performance

I'm not allowed to put a link here, but if you want to find the article on fuzzy logic and the download link for the spreadsheets google "John Holtrop" + "fuzzy logic"

It's good stuff

What boat should I go for... now that's about the worst question you can ask. All the things you liked about certain boats will be trampled on by some, the ones you didn't like will be praised by others, and the really good ones you probably can't afford.
The truth is people have sailed around the world in just about anything, even a windsurfer, so go for something YOU like, and if the surveyor says it's ok, enjoy.
I know of a guy who singlehanded a Bavaria 36 around the world, and guess what: He neither sunk nor did he loose the keel or any other vital parts. Which goes, I suppose, to prove that 'it takes 2 to tango'.

Your pleasure is my business !!!
