We are not talking about what color the water in your head is when you flush, we are talking about whether the boat was built for the demands of the sea, harsh days and harsher nights, terrible storms, and still able to power small islands and have 2 grills on the back.

We are talking about a Catalina, of course. Want a picture!!???

A fine, blue water, offshore capable, Cruiser/Racer YACHT (not a boat), driven by a very capable, honestly good looking, captain:

Don't pay any attention to the CG definitions or catorgorizing of things. It's just a junior officer trying to come up with stuff to justify his existance and
portray intelligence.

Probably the regime where 99.9% of the 'design' doesnt break or fall apart when being used in its intended venue. Ie. the normal 'scantlings' as defined by insurance claims (or not). AS an example -- that would exclude the Bavaria's with the 'fall-off keels' and the Jeanneaus with the 'snap-off' spade rudder stocks .... those would fall outside of 'normal' (0.1%) and therefore deemed to be 'outside' of normal scantlings. :-)

The definitions are as follows:
If you are wearing rubber farm boots you are shallow water.
If you are wearing hip waders you are Near coastal.
If you are wearing chest waders you are Coastal.
And if you on a boat and out of sight of land you are ocean.

So by the above, if you can get out of your boat and wade ashore you are either near coastal or coastal.

I have a "Near Coastal" license from the Coast Guard. For licensing purposes at least, the definition in 46 CFR sec.10.103 is "ocean waters not more than 200 miles offshore"

For what it's worth..
