Anybody have any experience on this type of Catalina
sailboat? (Catalina mk ll ) There is one asking 84k and although I am searching for something else I was wondering if anyone had experience sailing/cruising on one of these in the Bahamas
My heart is set on a catamaran
but lately I have been wondering if I should just get a less expensive monohull
and just GET OUT THERE already.
Secondary question I guess is that the real issue is I can get the Gemini catamaran
I like in the 80-120k range or a monohull
for half that amount. I know whatever i get i will have to put money
to make it seaworthy- so maybe that cheaper monohull will cost 30k to make it ready - second question was if anyone could comment on their own conflict about wanting a used catamaran or getting a monohull for much cheaper. Not contemplating a circumnavigation
- just learning
to sail it for a few season on the Chesapeake and then onward down IC to s. Florida
, and maybe carib or gulf side of Mexico
I don't mind the healing of a monohull or the motion at anchor
but will have my wife along and would like to make it 'milder' for her.
Any input is appreciated-
