Being a gentleman, I will refrain my comments for Mr. Kennedy. However, it is obvious he has much to learn!!

With a last name like that, you should not be anywhere near a sailboat or a car or a plane. Lock yourself in a room and just watch youtube videos.

Oh no he didn't..

Wow. That was below the belt. You can't hold John John and uncle Ted against me.

SD: Sorry if I offended you. I had a 27' Cat on my short list until I found something I liked better.

Bestfriend: what youtube videos are you referring to?

Didn't offend me at all... probably offended CD a bit though.... I have no connection with Catalina... don't even own one...

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.

Thomas,

You did not offend me at all.... looking back at my thread, it sounded like I might have been offended. Besides, you see all the rationing of crap I put up with here!! You will have to get in line to dish it out!!

- CD

PS On a serious note: As long as you are not crossing oceans, Catalina is a great boat. I would not take one across the Pacific (though people have), but I would not take a Valiant to the islands... so a place to each. Find a boat that touches your heart. That way, when it touches your wallet (or grabs ahold) it won't hurt so much!!!

no worries. I can take a joke. That's actually my motto in life. "If you can't laugh at yourself, I'll do it for you"
