from what I've read so far i will need to look into this alot more. you say catalinas and hunters are the fords and chevys of the industry. thats what i was suspicious of. the way the people bash one or another it reminds me of exactly that.
i have found however that i really do like CSY
sail boats. they are in my price
range and they seem like a very sturdy reliable boat. and it seems that if i look hard i can find some really good deals on them aswell.
I currently live in Utah but I'm from Oregon
and my wife is from the Oregon
coast. We are talking of moving back to the coast around Charelston or North Bend. I love the Charelston marina. i grew up there and i really miss the fog
and rain. I'm starting to dry out here in Utah. One thing i don't miss though is the huge sea lions there. these things do some serious boat damage if they manage to get aboard your vessel. plus they'll trap you on the dock
if they think they can bully you out of a fish head
or something like that. but i will say the dungenous crab there is awsome. you catch them right off your boat and oh boy they are great. Anyway, thanks for the info,
If you have any more ideas on boats like CSY
, quality wise, let me know. i don't mind early years as long as it's good quality.
And i'll work on the caps thing.
