    Hmm Christian. It does look like the grass is not a little greener on the other side of the fence. Every area has its problems. 60 foot seas? Terra Nova's mast is only 51 feet above the water. I guess a little cold is OK!

    There's a free Catalina 27 on craigslist that was a casualty. Still floating, but the bow is pretty chewed up:

    Why am I attracted to gaping holes in boats? Why does some voice say, c'mon, this repair will be easy and fun? It's a pathology.

    Christian, It's fixable but it probably would be cheaper to buy one in good shape. I think it is the challenge. Isn't this the same harbor that got chewed up last year?

    I wonder if the owner or the insurer is actually the seller? The owner should be at the bank depositing his check...
    That much damage would usually "total" a boat of that size and vintage.

    Perhaps it wasn't insured.

    That dinette layout is rare and I like it better than the traditional layout.
