Re: Which Is the Best Boat Catalina Ever Made ?

Well I'd personally like a thicker hull. My Catalina is already not winning any races, so I'd to know she's a hardy one.

Re: Which Is the Best Boat Catalina Ever Made ?

Had a 22 and a 36, enjoyed them both a lot for what they were good for. The 42 seems to be a big seller and several are travelling the world. The Catalina owners have beautiful 42s. I'm going for one next.

Ibought Cat-22 hull number 61 directly from Frank Butler. Told him that it was pretty good, so he went ahead and built another 15,000+ of them.

Must have been pretty damn good!
