MISC. Canadian coast-guard inspected 2013 Owners manuals and up-to-date records Spare parts and fittings Storage tarp 20x30 ft Note: We are selling the boat due to our age. The 1995 Catalina C250 WB #151 has been featured many times in magazines such as the “Catalina Mainsheet”, and the “Good Old Boat”, magazines for practical modifications. The C250 WB is both inside and outside including the sails, hardware, trailer and dinghy in excellent condition. The ablative bottom antifouling could use some touch-up with ablative paint provided.
We really don't want to but... this year our 5 weeks on the boat to Desolation Sound things seemed to have gone a little slower.
It took us longer to raise the sails and taking them in earlier etc. We seem to motor more and are a bit more concerned and apprehensive about weather and conditions especially during longer open water passages.
After 30+ years with her, some good friends of mine just sold their beautiful, classic Mystic 30 cutter and bought a gorgeous Robinhood 33 "Downeaster"... Roomier, quieter (under power, as cruising sailboats so often are), faster, drier, and easier.
