Our neighbour used the words “Hell Hole” to describe winter in Canet, he was waiting for his new 47 Catana to be delivered. His boat was delayed in production for 3 months and now it was complete, the wind was having the last laugh delaying his departure by a further two weeks.

As for us we have only been here for a week and already I am starting to agree with the hell hole description. Here the winter wind is bone numbing cold and ferocious. I am in shock, coming from summer to this bitter cold wind that bites. Since the day we arrived the wind has been non stop, only varying in intensity but never ceasing. I think more of the Canet residents for living in a “winter” war zone,  particularly watching the workers outside in winds of 40 knots plus, day in day out. That’s hard work.

Yet I love Canet in the summer, the winter, I am not a fan.

“Regardless what name you give this wind, it is just shit”

That’s another quote from my “47” neighbour which I happen to agree with on this day of wind and more wind.

The wind did eventually stop, and INXS got to leave.

    I got this email question from Paul and I thought I would share:

    Hello again The Miss,

    I have got you was wondering if you had any thought on whether the 47 is a worth the difference in cost from the 43? I see your friends who own a 47. What do you think?

    Hi Paul

    I loved the new 47 so much the room difference was amazing. A fantastic boat. So much bigger without being overly big.
    The 47 seems better made than 42, with the workmanship better in Canet than La Rochelle I would suggest. Also the layout of the owners version on the starboard is much smarter for a several reasons.

    Re going the extra cost it depends what you want with your boat I suppose. When we purchased it was size and money that fitted us at the time, now I have been on the new 47, I really really want one!
    INXS was fitted out with every piece of smart technology and the owners had already owned a 42 so they new what they were doing. They had to press Catana to get their boat out of production on time however they to are thrilled with the end result. Worth the wait I would suggest it’s a great boat.

    Cheers a Miss with boat envy :)


    Thanks Miss

    I was kind of hoping you wouldn’t have liked it that much. I think once I
    inspect a 47 I am really going to want one also.

    We have looked at picking the boat up in Canet. It will mean that we turn
    into full time livaboards though – seems like a scary proposition. Most
    things that are worthwhile are though I suppose.

    The broker just told me that it could be ready by Jan 16. I know it will
    be drawn out past that so am expecting some pain on that front.

    Anyway, feel free to put me up on your blog.

    Best regards

    comment. I do believe that you need to publish more about
    this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people do
    not discuss such topics. To the next! Best wishes!!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
