I'm thinking about how Frank and Margaret Dye survived in a Wayfarer.. when just about any wave must have crashed on them.
I have a wayfarer islander Bahama 24 safe in just about all conditions built to morc standards I haven't been in the s...... with it but have never worried even with 6 to 8 ft breakers on a 5 to 7 second period

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Why? You'll be miserable the whole time. Spend a little money on a bigger boat. Remember that the volume of room inside of a boat is the cube of it's length. And the hull speed increases as a multiple of the waterline length. If you have the budget/income for even considering sailing around the world, you can probably afford a used 30-footer, and actually enjoy the trip. I used to cruise in Lake Champlain (quite big) with a Tanzer 22. Loved the sailing, but hated having to root through layers of stuff, that I was already sitting on, just to find what I wanted. Unless you're into some sort of endurance trip, don't do that to yourself.

Read this and note the fixed keels plus the 400 pound purchase price!

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Everyone always wants to circumnavigate the earth in their Catalina 22. I was always curious about outfitting my C22 to sail to the moon. Escape velocity is about 21,771 knots, which is technically above hull speed, but I assume that faster speeds are achievable once you leave the water.

Take out of the library or buy a book called
Adlard Coles' Heavy Weather Sailing, Sixth Edition: Peter Bruce: 9780071592901: Amazon.com: Books Adlard Coles' Heavy Weather Sailing, Sixth Edition: Peter Bruce: 9780071592901: Amazon.com: Books



Heavy weather sailing. It will show you what kind of boat you need to be in to weather what you will find out there. Sure you could do it, but only if you are exceptionally lucky, and if you have that kind of luck, then you will luck out on getting the kind of boat you need.

Sorry... but a 22 foot sailboat especially a compac 22 is only a coastal sailer. My 19 foot WWP19 is more seaworthy than your compac 22, and wouldn't even think of it despite the fact that people have sailed them to Bermuda and to Hawaii.

After reading this book you will think twice. I did.

Also worth looking into his "Endangered Species" that he's done the TransPac in several times.

That is just not true.
While some bad designs have had too much stability in the inverted position they would have stayed inverted with any type of keel (but would have capsized earlier with a full keel). The long lever of a fin will actually make any boat less stable in the inverted position.
