I live on a Catalina 42 MK II wing keel sailboat.  You can get a sense of Reboot by visiting the Catalina Yachts web site by clicking on this link.  If you are into sailing you can also look at some of their newer and bigger boats and drool as I do!  Of particular interest is that the 42 has 6'8" of headroom in the main cabin and 6'4" of headroom in the forward cabin.  Since I am 6'6" tall being able to stand up in the main salon is a big deal.

Reboot is federally documented and licensed for high frequency (long distance) radio communications.  She also equipped with a digital calling capable VHF radio.  She is also equipped with maritime email via Winlink.
