Re: Size vs. Condition/Amenities?

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

It's possible but extremely improbable, and it would take support, you'd need to rebuild the boat a couple times enroute just from wear and exposure, even without breakage.

Ignore it and go sailing, switch it on if you like, if it smokes, turn it off and repeat step one.
