I think that BUG may be better suited for learning kids..the Bic is harder for them
I thought Catalina was the Bic lighter of boats? Inexpensive, easy to find, but no good in the wind. And disposable.

I like CD'd theft deterrent....

must be a beast... a real case of jaws with legs....

Hey CD..get a real dog...and while you're at it..get a real boat, too....

Sway..CD is like those guys that marries the same woman twice




(for over sensitive Catalina owners, this joke was aimed at CD, not Catalinas...if CD had a Hunter...I would use the word hunter...)

Sway..the thing is BIC's are quite expensive..

Next year we're taking Fred's Old optimist along crusing, so he can sail around when we anchor..

Problem is can't be towed..so I have to figure out where to carry it. The bic would be a good thing, but he didn't like it

I think you need an arch on your transom so you can hang Fred's Opti and the Bar-B-que's and the hoist for Lambchops!

I wish I knew your opinions on Catalina before I officially asked for a new 400 today. Sailing on Catalinas for 25 and now I find this out!

Seriously...I have been wondering how to carry it...Can't go across the cabin, as it hits the top of the cabin and the boom jack..

Can't out it upfront, because of the low pass genoa...

I may have to hang it of the backstay. and supported at the transom of my boat.

Thank you Cam. I really liked the boat you sold. Wished it were still in the Great Lakes.

Parents started us sailing when I was 4 on a Catalina 27. It had an outboard 9.9, small v-berth for my brother and I. Parents slept on the fold down table. The dinghy was some cheap inflatable you had to inflate and deflate each time you used it. They used to tie a couple dock lines to it and the stern so we could "row around and explored". During one two week cruise we made sure a rock was supposed to be where it was in the North Channel.

From then a 30 and 36. Now it's my turn.

I have no misconceptions about Catalinas. I've sailed them through and into many heavy things. I just got back from a factory tour. I don't believe my mind could be changed on the boat of my choice. I guess if everyone wanted to donate a lot of money I might reconsider.

Cam—

Bit confused at you saying nothing under 50' was picked....when you posted:

Quote:
Cruising Multihull: Moxie 37, a South African designed and built catamaran that combines high- performance fun and leisure-mode cruising in a single well-conceived package
Performance: Santa Cruz 37, almost all-carbon, this boat displays excellent sailing performance
Last I checked, 37 < 50....unless those are in meters, in which case, Holy **** Batman...they're really big bastages... but I don't think so.

Maybe they didn't want to tick off all their big production boat advertisers by picking just one!
I guess Cruising World will be out with their picks soon as well.
Anyway...I agree that one should never take these picks too seriously...but it is a good series as it does introduce us to the innovations in the marketplace each year.

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.

You are correct SD...should have said monohull even though sailboats have one hull and water transports have 2 or heaven forbid...more.
