Re: Some people's children...

I may be totally wrong, but it sounds like Bubble just came to SN to blow off steam as many of us have done on occasion. "Socially challenged" would seem to apply more to someone who bursts into...

Re: Looking for a Catalina 320, 34 mark ii or 309

Try Googling Catalina clubs in your area. Send out emails to the contacts letting them know what you're looking for. More than a few Catalinas in the club I belonged to were sold within the club.

Re: Tartan 3700 issues, PLEASE!

I did the absolute same thing over a different boat. I'm pretty sure I felt drool on my chin. We're going for it.

Re: Beneteau USA closing operations?

Then perhaps use the email that was posted in the thread, the one to the Beneteau rep, and ask.

I'm probably going to suggest to the other mods that we delete this thread. It's nonsense if you're...

Re: Couple and a toddler, which boat to look for?

There are plenty of boats sailing the islands with 6 foot drafts. Unless you get a boat that can be beached, you're going to need a dinghy (unless you only plan on staying at marinas). Increasing the...

Re: World wide Marine Data Weather Resource


You're trying to provide facts to someone who is convinced he is right. Hard to open that door once it is closed.

Re: I need a used keel for a 22 foot catalina please help.

Sorry to hear about your keel. You've probably already done this but just in case, Catalina has strong owners associations so perhaps the 22 group can be of some help:

Re: Which ones have ship wheel/helm and no tiller?

Once you start sailing and get a chance to get on different boats this will be clearer, I'm sure.

Even with an inboard motor the wheel or tiller is still usually on the "'outside."

Re: sailed once with my uncle

Where's Mr. Bubs' dead horse when we need it?
