Pictures of My Boat in Cuba!

Look at the adventure I'm NOT having . I sold my Catalina 36 and the new owner (Colombian citizen) took it down to Cuba on his way south to Colombia. Pictures in his blog. Even though I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere (for one more week), I'm happy to see the ol' girl is doing what she was built to do! It's also kind of cool seeing 'my' boat in Cuba.

I can't believe you did not volunteer to crew for the delivery. Looks like great fun.

Re: Pictures of My Boat in Cuba!

I'M ASHAMED OF YOU!! Didn't you warn this poor fellow that if he took a Catalina 36 off shore that it would either explode or melt right out from under him? It's true, ask almost anyone on Sailnet.

PS - Yeah, pretty cool seeing your boat in Cuba, looks pretty nice there.

Great post!

He hasn't made Columbia just yet. Keep an eye on this thread; when the boat does end up sinking after exposure to BLUE WATER I'll be sure to post an update!!



And believe me, if work wasn't keeping me off the water, you can bet I'd have volunteered to go!

Re: Pictures of My Boat in Cuba!

Thanks for sharing, that's very cool. One day I'll be heading to the same destination.
Do you know if they are taking the boat down there for good? or are they coming back with it?


Creedence623. For the record;..... it's spelled Colombia, not Columbia , that's a different place.

Re: Pictures of My Boat in Cuba!

That sounds like a nice trip. It's great these guys didn't listen to some on these forums. (Staying coastal with a Catalina/Hunter/Beneteau).

I see on the tracker they stopped by Turks and Caicos. Can't wait to do my Island Hopping trip.

Re: Pictures of My Boat in Cuba!

Great looking boat and have to admit Cuba looks pretty inviting.
How was the teak finished?

Re: Pictures of My Boat in Cuba!

You can photoshop anything these days, I don't believe it, just the other day was a long thread about how Catalinas self-destruct in saltwater.

Re: Pictures of My Boat in Cuba!

Is the mast leaning to port? Look at the photo labeled Gasparilla.

I noticed that too. The boat always had a lean to port, but that looks pretty extreme. I haven't spoken to the new owner to ask, but it may be the camera angle. The standing rigging is brand new, so there's a chance they were playing with the rig tension.

sevseasail, good catch on the Colombia thing. I can't believe I had never taken time to notice the difference.

Captainmeme, The teak was a few coats of Cetol Light with a coat of gloss. A lot easier than 7 coats of varnish (easy being of critical importance given that brightwork has a life span of just under 37 mintues in Florida).


Looks like they are passing between Haiti and Cuba now.
