Catalina 30 Newport, RI
I am shopping for one. I am going to list my C30 this Summer and see what happens...

I would love to hear your impressions so far and what to look for. I want to do some cruising around New England.

Only thing I can pass along is they are initially tender so you will find yourself going to windward with the leeward rail in or close to the water. Then they stiffen up. I had two friends who owned them. One was a pretty yawl, well kept up. The other was a sloop not so well kept up. The yawl had a Westerbeke engine and the sloop had a Volvo - not so good.
