wannabe laser?

Thread starter #1
Anyone ever sailed a catalina capri 13'. I picked one up from my neighbor for an unbelievably cheap price considering its almost perfect condition. It is almost identical to a laser except for some of the rigging and the cockpit is much larger. I was just curious what the deal is with whether they are still around or if they compete with the laser, or what anybody thinks of them.

Portsmouth handicap:
Catalina 13 (Capri) 91.7
Laser 91.1

Which means that the performances are virtually the same, if sailed properly, etc.
