Dream Boats French Polynesia Catana 47

Just finished a cruise in French Polynesia on a Catana 47. Took photos of the hull so no other mug falls for these guys. Appalling, These were barnicals and I couldn't remove them

The old "forget the attachment" trap. I always start my emails with adding the attachment to prevent exactly this.

His first post took him almost three years. Plenty of time to attach the foto.

Re: Dream Boats French Polynesia Catana 47

No we decided to stay here in Croatia to do our work on the boat, we had to remove the bow roller assembly and actually took it in our luggage 10kg! back to Australia to repair and whilst there we finalised our registration, we received the marking note last week.
We will equip here with solar/battery/additional sails having found various suppliers and factories here.
Went to the BIOGRAD Boat show last 2 days and was amazed at the quality and quantity of gear on offer, as lofts go into winter things get cheaper because the industry here dies.
Enjoy the warmth we have a SSE blow here to keep the projects inside the cabin!!!
Good to hear from you.
Back to thread ---- I wont use those barnacly charter operaters either, a good heads up!

Re: Dream Boats French Polynesia Catana 47

I'm looking forward to seeing some photos of the Catana 47, I really like that boat. It's one of the contenders for when my wife and I retire and go cruising.
