Catalinas are nice and the 30 is a good boat. Also keep a lookout for the O'days such as the 302 and the 31. Great boats that sail very well.

The "422" he is describing is not a 422, but a 40 mkII. The only difference from the standard 40 that I know of is the grey gel coat and the long lexan windows aka 322 style.
