Unfortunately, Melyea, I'd guess he's joking.... That's a sad reality about boats and upgrading.. figure that Steve would need to spend $200K or more to make the switch, if you realistically quantify what he'd gain (over what he's already got) seems to me it's hard to justify... esp if he's upgraded his existing boat with goodies the 'new' one doesn't yet have.

Ahhh... now you get to the rub of many C400 owners. The answer to your question lies in a riddle:

What is the draft of a Mark II C400? (It is a trick question).

Go for the 42. Awesome boat. You will love it and laugh that you ever second guessed it.

Re: Catalina 42 ... Why not?

They're good boats, built reasonably well in the U.S. from a builder with a good reputation. I vote for get it.

Re: Catalina 42 ... Why not?

Do any C42 owner blogs talk about boosting tankage and stowage of the boats for longer passage making? Of course, that would be something people would probably do with just about any production boat if they want to venture further than most.

We spent a few nights aboard one some time ago during chilly weather, and one recollection was that the mast was adjacent to one corner of the pullman berth... and that bare metal was chilly... seems like a padded cover would have solved that micro-issue.
