My husband Gregg and I are new owners of a 1997 Catalina 36 MKII, renamed Cosmos. We purchased it this past winter, launched last weekend and brought it from Lake St. Clair in Michigan down the Detroit River to Lake Erie where we are docked on Catawba Island. My husband is the sailor but I am learning! This is a larger boat for us and a new experience. Looking forward to the summer and future cruising!
