A VERY pretty boat. Best of luck with her.

Re: First Boat 2 Options

I know I might hurt someone's feelings, but that boat is way way better looking than the Catalina! Sweet boat, glad to see another happy ending! Nice to see the final decision, as so often you see these posts and think, what did they do?

Re: First Boat 2 Options

Congrats on your new boat! You definitely made the right choice. The CD is better built and infinitely prettier!

Re: First Boat 2 Options

Congratulations I had the UK equivelent of a Catalina 22 and loved it but your purchase is certainly a prettier boat and I suspect one capable of handling bad weather better.

Enjoy her and sail the snot out of her.

Re: First Boat 2 Options

That's a very pretty vessel.
I would classify it with those few small "pocket yachts" that are far more capable than their length might indicate.
Along with the Flicka, Nonsuch 22, Stonehorse, the Ericson 23, and... etc....

Good Quality and as others have noted it has a wonderful "row away" factor.


Fair winds,


L

In less than 2 weeks I close on my third Catalina and my feelings aren't hurt. That's a good looking boat. Much prettier than the Cats.

Sailing for me is all about time on the water; I think a CD would take too much time to keep it looking nice, and it's too sweet of a boat to not have it look nice.

Beautiful boat! Congratulations.

Re: First Boat 2 Options

Congratulations!. Not only is she a sweet looking vessel, somehow she looks like she belongs on that dock, and the dock looks like it is happy to have her in it's embrace.
