Re: Advice for buying this Catalina 30

I bought a 1989 Catalina 30. The broker I bought it from in Rochester, NY gave me some good advice as it was my first investment in a BIG boat. Buy the nicest one you can afford, it will save you...

Re: Can We Bareboat Charter in BVI's?

I went with Moorings and a 33' monohull for our first charter last year. I picked them to get a furling mainsail since we were a little (lot) unsure about what to expect. I had ocean sailing and we...

Re: What do you pay for Slip Fees??

Paid $3k for a 30' slip in Oriental, NC (Pecan Grove). Slip fees seem to be lower there now. More empty slips than I remember over the last 10 years. Now I pay $4800 at Wrightsville Beach, NC and...

Re: How far out? - Cellular Range from shore.

Recently we sailed from Wilmington, NC to Morehead City, NC. No or poor service along the middle of the trip. Verizon service, no booster, iphone. I wonder what you get from the boosters?

Re: When were you ready to single hand?

Re: Newbiw Member -> Present sailor -> Future liveaboard -> Compac 27/2?

Lots of knowledge on the CP-27 on the forum. I have owned mine for 4 years and had very little issues with build quality. Not the fastest in the fleet but a nice boat to get your feet wet.

Re: L. Francis Herreshoff - boat designer... and guns

I would think the matching gun to the H28 would be a Winchester Model 12 pump gun. 12 gauge of course.
