Catalina Yachts: One big family
"Eventually, he wanted something larger than a dinghy so his growing family could enjoy sailing together. Says Frank, "The first boat I bought [for the family] was a Victory 21." But his first boatbuying experience wasn't a good one. The builder was strapped for cash, and when Frank arrived to pick up his boat on the appointed day, neither the boat nor the owner was to be found. He quickly assessed the situation and basically began to build the boat himself with help from some of the builder's employees, all but commandeering the plant until he finished it.
