Maybe the best sailing Catalina is the original 38 from the 'Yankee' molds by S&S, though.
Also the prettiest, to me. Fast and stiff.
I think you're right on N/M vs. Frers. I stand corrected.

I came very very close to buying a C38; had an offer ready to submit when a First 405 came up that I preferred in every way, even though the tumblehome was pretty cool on the 38.

Wifey B: Gone gone gone. That's as horrible as those of us with fast boats and no trawlers.

I think trawler forum is built on a style of cruising, not a type boat and you'll always contribute.

LOL. Me too. It has twin Lehmans though so maybe I will get an extra dispensation for that.

If you did get booted, it would only be as far as CF (Cruisers Forum). Same owners.

And even getting booted that far is unlikely, as CF allows us non-sailors on there without much complaining.

I'm going that way to get away from the US for a while. I can't afford to see the world while feeding a diesel engine. I don't have youtube money. I'm sure I will return to the trawler lifestyle in a decade or two, if I make it that long.

Oooh, a Cheoy Lee 52! One of the few vessels I would consider trading my Cheoy Lee 46 LRC for...

After 40 years of blow boats I just boat a GB36. I'm going to try trawler life for a while. I have considered, and can see both the pros & cons to either. Best of luck.

Wifey B: In Non Covid times (omg I now know what BC means, Before Covid...ok, I know it's sacrilegious..please forgive me Goddess, but it's no worse than buying a sailboat), about four times a year when cruising we'd charter a sail boat for a day. We'd do the same with fishing charters. Now, we didn't work on our sailing skills because mostly we have none or very few. We love to spend a day on a sailboat in different locales and a day fishing in different locales. Not my thing all the time, but I do understand what people see in it at least. Our last time was a Moorings charter in the Bahamas which we kept for several days. We have a captain we hired last year who grew up working for Moorings in the Virgin Islands (she had gone mostly from sail to power) and lived on a sailboat as well with her father so were well covered there. So, enjoy your new powerboat with those things up there flapping in the air.

Nothing wrong with being bilingual. Sail or power, then there is rowing.
However BC stands for British Columbia and we are proud of it. I am sure Before Covid will catch on as most everything will be by then if DC, Done w/Covid does not catch on.

Hard to do a proper photo shoot with so much stuff in the way at dockside. Next time it will be in a more appropriate context.
