A little paranoid, maybe? Sometimes a phone call is a lot quicker for both people so you don't have to do back-and-forth messaging. Also, the toughest (and often most valuable) criticism is often done privately, not in the fishbowl of message boards.

Why not just call the guy? Someday you might need one of us to return the favor.

Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42

Yes, I might be paranoid, however a quick search of my posts will quickly reveal that a-we are new saliors and b-we have small kids with us. Can you please give an example of a question he could ask that I could possibly answer about a boat that I have only spent maybe an hour on in my life?

Why did we pass on it? The design of the V berth, not enough room for our feet to be flexed due to our height. And we liked the other boat in the same price point better.

Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42

Many boats are misrepresented in their listings. Since the ID of the boat has been posted here, many would be reluctant to make that accusation publicly. Talking privately will often reveal the real, unvarnished truth.

Like most here, I've raised kids. I've NEVER been too chicken to make a simple phone call. Scammers don't tend to hang out here. You could always do *67.

We all reveal our personalities here over time. We leave a lasting written record. Don't forget that.

Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42

brian would like it as it is a shoal draft. I would not look at it because it is a shoal draft.......

Does a shoal draft only mean a more shallow draft...therefore less stability?

True Brian would like something as it is a shoal draft. Us around puget sound seem to be in 600+ ft all the time, so and extra foot or two of draft is not a big deal.

as far as the stability part......"assuming" properly designed with more wt in the keel, the shoal draft "should" be just as stable. Then again, with some of the Jeanneau models, they have performance options, which include a taller mast, more SA and one can only get the std deep keel, or the optional DEEP keel which is usually 6-12" deeper yet. It also usually wieghs 2-400 lbs less than std, and shoal is typically upwards of 1000 lbs heavier than the std keel. My wt numbers are only ment to be a example, I am sure if you looked at a 60+ foot boat, you could add a zero to some of the numbers I used, smaller boats in the 20' range you could remove a zero.

I have always based draft more on where I am going to be cruising. East coast intercoastal waterway, Chesapeake Bay, Florida, and Caribbean a shoal draft is better. I have a 7'3" draft but being here on the west coast it does not matter as much.

If you are worried about stability make sure you do a good sea trail. I would also find an owner's forum and ask them about the over all handling characteristics.
