I just went through the same comparison and have the advantage of being a former owner of a Catalina and a Newport. Assuming we are talking boats in approximately the same ages, in my opinion, there is no comparison. The Newport is far and away the better boat. Better constructed, better sailing and keeps it’s looks longer. Our original Newport 30 III we bought new in 1987. We sold it only do to a move. When we got near the water again, there was no doubt what we wanted. However, just to be on the safe side we did the comparison again and the results came out the same. We compared several well-maintained 20+ year old Newport versus the same age Catalina. At least in our eyes the Newport 30 is still a much better boat. Catalina has the advantage of still being around, but I am not sure with a boat from the 80’s that really matters. Every boat is different of course and how well any boat is maintained means a lot. The Catalina is a nice boat…but ….apples to apples….take the Newport 30. We did….again.
I’ve heard what you’re saying here before, and I think the reason that people say it is because they simply aren’t patient enough to let deca hit their system, so they up the dose too early. If you run it at 100-200 per week, it’s gonna take a solid 8 weeks to really shine, but it definitely works. My guess is, most people run it at the lower dose for the first 4-6 weeks, then up the dose because they aren’t feeling it, start feeling it by around the 8th week, and come to the conclusion that the solution was a higher dose, not more time using the compound. I’d definitely recommend giving the lower dose a shot if the joint properties are what you’re really after. I find the deca side effects to be more manageable as well at a lower dose.
