not sure what you mean by salt water. But Catalina are great Bay boats. ie. Chesapeake bay. My boat is a 74 and have sailed it for the past 6 years. Great boats. They are like campers on the water. My GF and I could tuck into coves that most boats couldn''t. I wouldn''t take them into the ocean. But I wouldn''t be afraid to sail in a 10 to 15 knot breeze.

Good luck

Thank you ronjon

I expect to take on similar waters in the San Juans, never more than a few miles from shore and few long fetches.

I have a 32 ft2 jib that will go with a reefed main to reduce sails to 1/2 full SA which should make the boat behave in F7 the way it would have in F5, or what you are describing.

Alot of opinion seems to favor a reef in the mainsail at 12-15 knots.

Looking forward to entering a crowded marina and finding a spot in deep because of the swing keel!
