This is about a kid sailing around the word. You might want to read and watch Leen & Larry Parley books and videos. They will help making your boat ready for all the passage needs, like collecting water with the sail and the bimmini. The most important topic is the storm tactics experience require for the probable 10% of very bad weather. I you have the spirit and practice your tactics, you can do anything you set your mind to. Also check The Lion Heart.

Check Leen & Larry Pardey Home Page: landlpardeydotcom

Or just give robin a call he owns Graham construction building log homes in kalispell Montana these days. His boat dove was a gladiator which is a splash of the islander Bahama 24 full keel and built to Morc standards

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Yeah, I'm thinking a Westerly 30 is perhaps the smallest boat that has headroom and durability enough for a troll to circumnavigate?

Trolling or not, surprised that no one mentioned John Guzzwell 'Trekka around the world' Trekka is in the Victoria Maritime Museum now and John still shows up in town once in a while.

That is just not true.
While some bad designs have had too much stability in the inverted position they would have stayed inverted with any type of keel (but would have capsized earlier with a full keel). The long lever of a fin will actually make any boat less stable in the inverted position.

Watch great footage about the story of one manís slow odyssey around the UK:

Also worth looking into his "Endangered Species" that he's done the TransPac in several times.

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Take out of the library or buy a book called
Adlard Coles' Heavy Weather Sailing, Sixth Edition: Peter Bruce: 9780071592901: Amazon.com: Books Adlard Coles' Heavy Weather Sailing, Sixth Edition: Peter Bruce: 9780071592901: Amazon.com: Books



Heavy weather sailing. It will show you what kind of boat you need to be in to weather what you will find out there. Sure you could do it, but only if you are exceptionally lucky, and if you have that kind of luck, then you will luck out on getting the kind of boat you need.

Sorry... but a 22 foot sailboat especially a compac 22 is only a coastal sailer. My 19 foot WWP19 is more seaworthy than your compac 22, and wouldn't even think of it despite the fact that people have sailed them to Bermuda and to Hawaii.

After reading this book you will think twice. I did.
