Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

As the owner of a Catalina with a wing keel...I've seen posts before from people with anecdotal evidence that Catalina's with wing keels have longer rudders. While I haven't measured my rudder and...

Re: Suggestions for 28-32 cruiser?

There are numerous boats that would likely serve your purposes, with some previously noted, but I would also suggest looking at a Catalina 28. We have had one for several years and have been very...

Re: Taking my ASA101 and 103 at once

The wife and I took 101 & 103 back-to-back and I don't see an issue with it. Yes, while it would be ideal to practice in between, the OP may have some difficulty in finding someone willing to let...

Re: Main sail can be difficult to raise

I second the suggestion of using McLube on the slugs or sail track...I seem to use it everywhere now. For the main, I've used it only on the slugs and it does help...to some extent.

Re: Jeanneau or Catalina

Definately agree there...a search of yachtworld will show 4000+ for Beneteau and 2500+ for Jeanneau...with Catalina less than 1000...and likely almost all in the US.

Re: Blocked Raw Water Intake

The jellyfish was quite a messy situation...it seemed that every attempt to pull it out/loosen it only resulted in long stringy tentacles coming out...now I have even more reason to dislike them!
