New to this whole monohull thing.

Did you used to do the Multihull thing?

Just a question.

Let me guess, you like this particular breed.

Not a bad looking style, very Cap'n Ron and that first one looked great.

I loved one that was a few slips down from me at Ortega River Bat yard in JAX FL in 2002. I passed on what was then a ok deal and now a great deal...

Read Holding Pattern's Post. Nearly the same as mine earlier.

Cal 2-46 is a motor sailer IMHO. My very good friend came down the east coast, the Carib, to Hawaii, did the South Pacific and then sold his Cal 2-46 here in Hawaii for $80K last year. I sailed with him for a time and found that the ballroom layout was not to my liking in a seaway. Everything about it was too big for my point of view and most the time he motored. I don't like center cockpits because it makes the deck of your boat feel smaller and you are less aware of what's happening with your stern when maneuvering in tight corners. Its advantage is that it makes a beautiful apartment or condo when tied to the dock.

I've also sailed on a Celestial 46 and been aboard Fuji 45s. Too big. Even for a family of 4 they are just plain too big. Did I say yet that I feel they are too big. Just want to say that I think 45 46 are too big.

Kind Regards,

JohnL

Thanks guys, that first Hardin is on fy favorites list. To the question "I'm new to the whole mono thing" is I dont know smack about them caus for the past four years i've been reserching cats. Because we were going to sell everything and go. But now that I've done all this work to my house I realy dont want to sell it. So I have to spend a lot less on a boat to keep the house. All I know is what looks nice when it comes to mono's. But I can tell you anything about any cat out there there is to tell. I feel like I am starting all over again on knowing whats what. As far as size goes putting my self on a boat with a crazy wife hormonal 13yo and a toddler (all girls) less than 46 feet just sounds kinda stupid to me.
