Yes, a Catalina 34. I haven't had mine out in rough weather yet so i can't really comment from personal experience. I know quite a few of them have made ocean passages. I believe one poster here (georgeB) has sailed his from CA to Hawaii. If you're really interested you can get a ton of information from the user's association web site, c34.org.

The non teak swan is called a tartan

that's a racer, not a cruiser.....She is a nice vessel but I think being a beginner and plan on single handling much of the time I should stick to maybe a tartan 37 or even a wetsnail 32. I found a nice Down East 32 at a reasonable price which is a solid built boat I may go look at.

FLOYD:
One minute it's a Westsail the next it a Catalina. Maybe a Huntert?
Crossing the bar?

I think you are doing way too much talking and far too little sailing.
Time to get out of the basement and into a boat.

Too much talk, not enough sailing.

If I had a boat for sale, I would be sure to tell the OP that boat is the one he should buy!
