Re: Catalina 22 swing keel faring?

LL: There are some great online groups/forums for Catalina 22 owners you should check out. One is on Yahoo, search groups for Catalina 22. Another is the national organization home page: catalina22.org., and another is Catalina Direct for parts, forums, etc. The yahoo site has tons of information, the national organization site has lots of specs for all 3 models, and CD has most of the replacement parts you'll ever need. I've heard there is a new swing keel that uses a stainless steel structural core surrounded by lead and a fiberglass jacket/fairing. Don't know how it performs, since I have the wing keel, but it sounds like less maintanence than the iron keel.
