Re: Catalina 26 questions

Thank you Faster! The port arrangement is what threw me off too. I might head out this weekend to look it over. Where would the manufacture plate be at?

Re: Wet Dream

South Pacific would be awesome! But, to nail down anything more detailed, might be conspiracy! There's gotta be an island down there nobody knows about! ;-)

Re: Circumnavigating the Pacific

I think Africa has been done recently, but Eurasia would be really tough and long. Might be shorter to head for the north pole from the Bearing Strait and come back south on the Prime Meridian. I...

Re: Crabs

We've always cooked crawfish and lobster live. Tony Chachere's makes some really good seasonings for crab and crawfish! But, the Old Bay is also very good too!

Re: Please help identify

It looks a lot like a Venture 17 or possibly a Venture 21. Not too sure on the length of it. I'm really tempted to buy and begin to restore it, hoping I don't get in over my head with the work of it!...
