Exactly what we have and we don't regret the added draft. As SVA said here years ago: With a dinghy you can go anywhere.

Thank you Daniel but it's only a three hour sail...

Huh.

I agree. Everyone's risk acceptance is their own - I'd much rather have a slightly deeper fin keel than a wing (aka anchor). YMMV.

Re: Chesapeake Hopeful

The Catalina 30 is so roomy for its length that my nickname for it is "The Porn Palace."
My Pearson 30 was skinny by comparison, but I felt it had better performance than the standard rig, standard keel C-30 and maybe even a wee bit better than the tall rig.

No disagreement that the Catalina isn't a performance boat.

I can say with assurance, however, that I've never worn a bunny costume on board.

Noted. Red or white? Sweet or dry?

Re: Chesapeake Hopeful

I keep a couple bottles of wine on the boat, just in case I happen to meet up with John and Donna at an anchorage. I also keep a case of Coors Light, a bottle of Barcardi Oakhart, a bottle of Jim Beam Honey, and all the fixings for Green Coconut Margarettas.

All the best,

Gary

Re: Chesapeake Hopeful

Oh my.

I'm sounding like quite the lush.

While I have embraced better wines using screw caps in order to give the impression of being environmentally friendly, I have not had good luck with box wines.

Re: Chesapeake Hopeful

Donna, I sailed to Annapolis last week, met up with Mario and gave him one of your bottles, a bottle of Yellow Tail Merlot. I'll buy you a new one - I promise!
