tigerregis has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Welcome here. One of the previous posters has a Hardin for sale, well within your range. His name was surfesq and, if you search I'm sure you will find it. Or possibly Cam knows where that post is. Good Luck.

vermilli...yeah...but I don't think he is in the market for a million dollar catamaran! Probably a useful guy to talk to though!

I find myself usually thinking rather uncivilly "ooh, more for me!". Even in a monohull, you will often be over 20 degrees or so, but it's a fairly constant and not particularly abrupt motion unless you are on a close-haul. Then you can just spill some main or put on a hat.

Having had a couple of close calls when single-handing, I always wear the PFD alone. In fact, I wear it all the time on deck. It's just gotten to be habit. I also wear bicycle half-gloves (fingerless) as a $9 alternative to Henri Lloyd-type gear. I do that because a cam cleat giving way at the wrong point can tear skin off your fingers or palms in a big blow, which I find detracts from the fun and makes nasty spots on the teak and the gelcoat.

Yes, I would agree that finding space for a larger cat can be a challenge... However, the do just fine on moorings. And the smaller ones I mentioned actually will fit into many slips, as they have a beam of only 14'.

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.

I fully agree... PFD when single handing, and tether and harness most times too. Same about the gloves..

Cruising dad - Thanks for the food for thought. It'll take awhile to digest it but I'm sure it will create some good discussion amongst my family. Be careful what you ask for - lot's of questions coming your way.

Not a problem TNT. I don't care what you get, as long as it isn't a trimaran or a portugese racing boat. Both of them will warp your mind... (smile).

Grrr.... You really shouldn't talk... you're the guy who blows up grills to finish cooking the food... and craps his pants because he dropped a wrench in the bilge...









PS... CD is okay in my book if anyone thinks he and I are being serious... Even if he does have a Catalina fetish and sails a third of a boat...
