Re: My Cal 30 Ran Aground

Next boat I get will have an inboard, and be fully functional for sailing. Inspected by a competent person.

This all assumes my wife will let me!

Re: My Cal 30 Ran Aground

Just so happens there is another vintage Cal-30 for sale in that marina just inside of pearl harbor. Also a very well taken care of Catalina 27 with newer inboard. Not as sturdy as a classic Cal, but I pretty much a inshore cruiser and day sailor. Wife keeps me on a short leash. Kinky!

Re: My Cal 30 Ran Aground

When you get your next boat, I bet you'll be motor sailing in/out for awhile, I would be...

Sorry to hear about your loss.

Another good 'option' (quotes because for me it's NOT optional) is an anchor on a bow roller, always ready to go...

BTW, winds were ENE at the time. Wondered why I couldn't turn the boat to starboard.
This is how I purchased my sailboat. Looks like the anchor is ready to go! Lol
