Howdy from the Frozen Norf . . . :-)

Land Locked for now, but hope next spring to Remove myself from a Bad marriage and get free in a New/used Cat to sail away, far far far away..

Montana is Far away , but not in the right direction..

Been shopping for a new Home on the waves and really like the Cats.
Cheep is my need, not much cash to work with and credit may be bad after Wife gets dine with me.. ???

But, Love the Catalacs.. and Gemini's


Any hoo..

Howdy from me..
Paul...

I've just sold my boat. More for the lack of finance than the wrong woman but it was still a close call and painful to do.
I did a two day trip with 'boatman61' on a small Catalac, it fell a long way short of my Prout, slower, nowhere near the same room, and less freeboard. There are some decent Prouts around, get down to the internet and search around. Worse they are the cheaper they are but you will (subject to survey) get a sound set of hulls and a safe boat. And a bit of carpentry will make her YOUR boat.

Welcome, Saltwannabee, why wait for spring? As you leave for offshore, your other half becomes very easy to deal with knowing that now is her last chance to get what she wants. Good Luck!
