Re: Depth gauge on cat 25 acting up

I am having EXACTLY the same problem. It just started about a week ago. The boat in currently on the hard for a bottom job. I'm hoping it goes away when it goes back in the water.

Re: Jeanneau 42 vs. Catalina 42

I don't know much about the Jeanneau but the Catalina 42 is a very popular cruising boat. I don't think you can go wrong there if you find one in good condition.
