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.

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.

Seems that would be an incredible gift rating.
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).
