CAN SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT Pros and Cons of my furling mainsail.
COMMENTS We sail local waters of the Gulf Islands in British Columbia where we live. We have installed Furuno Radar as well as the other usual electronic toys (e.g. Loran, hand held VHF). We also had a Furling mainsail installed at the time of purchase. We have taken the boat as far up the B C Coast as Bella Bella. This took us a total of 9 weeks to complete. I like the ease this boat is to handle single handed as I spend quite a bit of time sailing by myself on day sails.

Can Share Information about Owned a 1988 Catalina 30 for 16 years. Did all maintance on it...
Nearly all aspects of my catalina 34 including the many upgrades I have supervised or done myself...
Comments This is my fourth Catalina,,22, 27, 30, and Now the Cat 34...It sails much better then any of the others..and has the new eliptical rudder which makes a huge difference ... it has a very neutral rudder...I use a smaller wheel when makeing long offshore trips..because it's easier for the crew to get around the wheel & the autopilot steers ...I also use a 42 inch wheel while crusing here on Pensacola Bay...

RIG standard
KEEL wing
COMMENTS I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada...so it's a long 10 hour commute to the boat by car or a one hour flight. Because of this I don't get out there every weekend. I used to go out Winter and Summer but the last couple of years I've become a bit of a fair weather sailor, putting the boat away the end of October and recommissioning the first of April. I sail throughout the San Juan Islands and into northern Puget Sound. I've got an Apelco 8 mile radar, dinghy davits, feathering prop, all Autohelm instruments -- depth, speed, autopilot (4000 and the remote multi-function head (a real jewel --lots of good information), and Espar heating. I have a cruising spinnaker with snuffer as well as the 150% genoa with roller furling and the standard Catalina main with an extra reef (I blew the top 4 sail slides out last May in 40 knot winds) that I put in last Summer. Oh yeah, most important I've got a dodger which I would not be without. Also have a wing keel and my most recent upgrade was the chain gypsy for my standard windlass that I never used in the 5 years previously. It was a bit costly but it was the best thing I've put on my boat in the last 2 years.
