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

At this point, we don't plan on extended cruising and with any storage space, it's more important to have enough room for the must haves rather than extra room for the it would be nice to haves.

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

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

Most couples (2 people) will charter a monohull. Sharing the expense with a like minded couple is a good idea but spending a week or so with one other couple you really don't know very well, in...

Re: Greenport Summer Slip Marina Recommendations

You may want to look into Mattituck.

But, IMHO, if you're planning to "commute" on the weekends to the East End from Jersey, it's best to do it in a helicopter rather than driving a car, YMMV.
