Nice boats. Nothing wrong with Cats. Want my docking advice? SLOOOOW. I creep in if I can. Coast to a stop. Finger piers? It's easy to pull alongside, stop and pull her in. I single handed a 30 Cal 3000 miles. There have been VERY few times I've relied on reverse to stop in a tight spot. SLOOOW! I don't know that I've ever backed into a finger pier...I always pull her back.

Re: Help me find my next boat 24-29 foot

well we got a boat today! A catalina 30 and I'm super excited yet overwhelmed at the same time. Survey came out good though I was white knuckled mooring her today in some wind (she is HUGE going from a C22). The previous owners are great people and really helped make this happen.

wanted to add we did go over budget but got a really nice boat that needs little.
It has older electronics though most work, it's very clean, passed survey, quite a bit of cruising extras (full canvas dodger/bimini). perkins diesel, and the wife loves it.

but a diesel uses half as much fuel as an outboard. and, in this area, diesel is cheaper than gas per litre as well.


Try a diesel on a boat larger than 3500 lbs displacement and you'll never go back to outboards.

I've done both- i know which i prefer on a cruising boat.
