Re: Jumping Ship: From a Mono to a Cat

Lee clothes - attached to hard bunks to prevent racing crews waking up when they are off shift.
It wasn't me fell out of bed on the Catalac though I did do the English part of that trip.

I've had to sell my cat and I'm finalising on a Jaguar 22 (I may have to rename it 'Arfur') at a tenth of the cost. Sailing has always been tugging at me, it's just much harder to do in a wibbly wobbly boat that can't make up it's mind where the horiaons supposed to be.

You're not 'jumping ship', you're just getting enlightened.

(Enlightened and a half with a tri)

Re: Jumping Ship - From a Mono to a Cat

So Saucy, Is the cat deal dead? Do you have any photos or info like price, damage, or specs on that cat. I just wondered what a grounded then repaired Catana would look like and the value that one would place on it. BOB
