yes, did consider some major mods to enable me to do long distance. 9m Catalac
is OK for trip across atlantic, but does not carry enogh water
for the pacific. I had plans well advanced for additional 2m waterline length, which would have given me the extra load capacity neded for the stores, but water
was still a major problem. I then looked at the cost of the mods and decided that I was better of to spend that money
on a different boat. Decision on which boat will depend on whether I win a contract
that I am bidding on for a major work package.
Either way, the replacement will be a Prout (catamaran)
