Re: Old, Solid, Slow but Reliable Cats - Which Would You Choose ?

Every time someone says they like a particular boat, I look at the ones for sale and price range. I used to get Multi-hull magazine when it first came out but haven't read it since '97 at CMA. Just got an on line subscription.

P36 and 37 - very, very nice. I would like one.

Good choice!

I looked at a lot of designs, and build quallity. Very few that have both right.

The Catalac 12m is a fantastic boat, and I suspect that they were to far ahead of their time in capability and size. Nowadays a 12m cat is not unusual, in those days people thought 30ft mono was the ideal cruising size.

I would also suggest that the Privilege 39 is very worth a visit. I went for the 37 in the end because of my height.

I understand your point. We both know that there are very, very few such articles around.

My way to read things is to get where the author is writing from and then 'filter' the points out trying (probably not always with full success) to see the advertising from the facts of life. It is possible I get sucked in.

Re your comment on twin steering stations (e.g. some Catanas) - bad, only as long as one has not sailed this type of cat. All steering is done by the auto so you push the buttons and you can have them wherever you want (also in your pocket). About the only time you will use the stations is when you dock the boat. I, for one, do not like steering from behind the bridgedeck - advertised as 360 view by some boatbuilders. 360 perhaps, unless there is some rain, condensation or if there are kids or guests watching TV in the bridgedeck. So I would stick to exposed stations.

Re daggerboards - seen them break. Not funny. Expensive. Likely to snatch lines and nets. Etc. etc. ;-) Will improve windward capability, but how many cruisers want to go to windward? A cruising boat is a compromise and giving up on the boards is fine with me - less complication, less cost, some performance loss on the point of sail that you are least likely to sail, cruising.

Re location of the cabins - I slept in center/fore (Schionning) and it was horrible (slamming), I slept aft (Catana) and it was horrible (engine noise). I slept in the bridgedeck and I slept great. I do not see many cats with owners cabin in the bridgedeck though.

Cheers,
b.
