My wife and I have been taking sailing for two summers now.
We want to buy a boat for coastal crusing.
We are not interested in crossing oceans, winning races, or anything like that.
However, we are at least potentially interested in coastal crusing from Canada
to the Caribean. We may never venture out this far, but would at least like to have a buy a boat that could potentially do this.
We don't have the money
for a top quality boat like Island Pacific.
The Catalina's seem to be up our alley for price
, comfort and ease of use.
However, are they OK for longer trips hugging the coatline down to the Caribean? I know they are not the best for that, but, are they sufficiently safe and well equipped for that?
