295 California Roll -- Long Beach CA

Owner (email) brooke roberts (brooke*spam-no-more**usamediaDOTtv)
Hull Number 295
HIN  
Year 1987
Boat Name Entry We were in a Sushi bar right after we bought the boat and were sort of over served on saki when the naming of the boat and our new cat came up. We bandied a few names about when I looked down at my plate and said, "California Roll" and
the name stuck. (MY friends 27 Catalina was named Sweet Roll" so it all made sense to us.)

The cat was named "Niko" which is Japanese for cat and the evening was complete. I still have California Roll but the cat provided a coyote a dinner shortly
there after so Niko is gone but California Rool is alive and well in Alimitos
Bay here in Long Beach.

How Boat Was Named Our Catalina 25 was also named Noeta. We thought the name was unique, sounded vaguely native while also filled the "fun" requirement.

If you read it is "Noeta"

If you spell it out load you usually get the "No ETA".

Longest/ noteworthy voyage: Palm Beach, FL. to Cuba
Rig: tall
Keel: wing
Can share information about: I am pretty good with engine work. Have replaced electric water heater. Have experience with overheating problems. Have a great way to drain transmission fluid and get all of the fluid out.
Comments: I purchased my boat Rebellious in Nov. 1986 while living in Newport Beach California. Rebellious was one of the early boats with the wing keel attached. In Dec. 1994 I had the boat trucked to Florida where I was moving. I can provide information on the process of shipping your boat if you intend to ship. Since moving to Florida, I have installed and mounted to the cockpit pedestal, Radar Plot chart and GPS. I recently sailed the boat in a sponsored race from Key West to Cuba; all of these upgrades were invaluable (Came in 6th). Rebellious is an 11 year old boat and not a single system failed on the 400 mile plus round trip. On the return tip to Miami we were in 25 knot winds and 10 foot seas for 17 hours without any problems. I am now looking forward to cruising the Caribbean in the future years. If I can be of any assistance fell free to contact me by e-mail.

Need Any problems owners have had with the 21 horse Universal diesel, and what type of longevity people are getting from that engine... also, has anyone any experience with the Doyle Stack Pack mainsail system? And how does this boat compare to a C30? 
Can share Extensive cruising experience along New England Coast, from Mt Desert to LI Sound....I am also a Coast Guard licensed Captain.
Comments I just traded my Cat 30 on the boat and we are very excited and can't wait until next season to sail this boat.  Survey was OK, did show separation of stringers in bilge (minor) and  slight lifting of deck by one chainplate ( more serious) but it is a dealer boat and they say they will [put everything right. Vessel is in otherwise great shape and has lots of nice gear; she was well cared for.

Longest/Notable Voyage To Lattimer's reef, in Fisher's Island Sound.
How Boat Was Named You don't sail in a straight line to your final destination very often. After several tacks and or Jibes you usually make it, only to turn around and do it allover again, in reverse, just like the childhood game HOPSCOTCH. Sounds better than Zig-Zag or Wig-Wag.
Comments We really enjoy the boat. Our 2 year old grandson also has a ball sailing with us.

342 RAHAB -- Newport Beach, CA

Owner (email) Steve and Kathy Nash (DosNerd*spam-no-more*aol.com)
Hull Number 342
Year 1987
Boat Name Entry Rahab was a second century BC prostitute that aided the spies of the Army of Israel, prior to the battle for Jericho. She was instructed to leave a scarlet rope hanging from her window so that the invading Hebrew Army would know to spare her house and family from destruction. In an act of faith she complied and her intire family was spared distruction. The Salvation of  Rahab,the prostitute,illistrates that even in a doomed city an ungodly prostitute could find grace by turning in faith to God. Rahab the  Catalina 34 has a scarlet line always tied from the deck to the spreader to hoist the radar reflector. This is a reminder that the scriptures are full of unlikely caracters that are used by God. Rahab went on to be the grandmother of King David, King Soloman and eventurally the great great grandmother of Jesus Chirst.
