Jeff--I know I exist. I have a feeling that Barr might actually be down the dock from me ... I guess on message boards we all have to take with a grain of salt everything that is posted. Even that YOU own a sailboat or know anything about boats. So please, don''t turn this into a personal diatribe, or use the profanity of your last posting. You said in a previous posting on this thread you wanted to hear from Catalina owners, well, here we are.

Texas Gal - I''m at Kemah Boardwalk Marina, E-Dock, slip 34. S/V Four Sail - my wife and kids love our boat and we''ll be out enjoying her for several days over Memorial Day.

I thought that it was you. We''re the 350 on the dock ( okay I made her a foot bigger in the posting, but hey, I think technically she is 36 feet) ... S/V Forever Young

Just because I don''t feel compelled to put my personal info online, doesn''t mean I don''t exist.

Just a note from one of the nonexistent, satisfied Catalina 350 owners from Deltaville, VA...

Wheeeewww.. I didnt mean to stir a hornet''s nest with this. Im finding that making a boat selection touches many ''religious'' issues with folks. Thanks to all of you who are expanding my perspective.

Looks like Mr Jeff threw a rock into a hornets nest. Maybe that was his intent. It appears that the aforementioned non-existent members are responding to Mr Jeff''s message.

Given that I may or may not exist, perhaps my opinion doesn''t count either. I''m a happy Catalina owner. Very happy.

Gary-- I hope you find a boat you love, whatever the manufacturer. As stated in SAILING magazine "The world is fraught with problems-it''s time to buy a boat."

Gary,

We rely on our sailboats and they become like friends to us. I talk to mine all the time. I guess some of us just get a little protective of our boats, and defensive of our choice.

One thing I''ve noticed - to the credit of the Catalina owners here - is that we''re not taking shots at other boat manufacturers. I like Bavarias, Benetaeus (except for the rope bridle traveller on some), and I only dislike Hunter for the way their styling direction has gone in the last dozen years - but that is entirely subjective opinion. I''m not wealthy enough to have a Nautor Swan and, for me, the Catalina seemed a sensible choice. Based on my experiences, I recommend them.

Good luck with whatever you decide on.

You know you could avoid all warranty issues like Denr has and buy a 30 plus year old boat. By then the boat has either sunk or should have all these issues ironed out.
