Denby,

This will be my first after kids. Prior to kids had a Seidleman 25, and Ericson 29 (my favorite), an Island Trader 46 (liveaboard) and a Pacific Seacraft 25.

It's good to be back.

You made a good decision there Nunzio... it won't be long before you find a boat that you have no real questions about and it knocks your socks off...

3600 square inches of hull damage. What did it collect, the pointy end of a stink boat.

You made a good choice, and welcome to sailnet.

In Hawaii I met a group of Japanese sailors who had sailed a Catalina from Japan to Hawaii, and then to the west coast. The boat had previously been at the bottom of Tokyo Bay with a hole approximately the size of the galley range. I don't remember exactly how that happened (they were sharing their Saki at the time) but in any event if a boat like that can sail uphill across the Pacific it should serve as a testament to fiberglass durability, and appearantly Catalina.

Here they are on their way to the PNW:



Anyone seen these guys?
