Great info mates, Thanks a lot. I should be ok I just purchased a Catalina
25 Swing Keel
as an upgrade to my C 22 SK. t has adequate room and facilities for the trip (head, lavatory and galley) She an older model but has spent its life in fresh water
Sailed / maintained by a excellent sailor and is in excellent condition. She needs a good clean up from the past year she has spent at the dock
. I look forward to getting her refit
and moved to relaunch on the loop in Kentucky near my home. thanks for your input. I'll go in my trip notes.
I've got to get a trailer together for the 700 mile tow to my home.
