2013 saw me finally buy my first sailboat. A Catalina 27 (#5321). Took it around the harbor here in Northport before bringing her in for Winter Storage. Been spending my time since then to determine what projects I want to get done before her launch in April.
Currently, I have 3 projects I would like to get done.
P1 - Move Traveller from rear boom to Midships
P2 - Install Safety Lines on Port/Stbd sides
P3 - Move Clutch and Throttle control to Edson Pedestal
Looking forward to sailing Huntington Harbor and the Long Island/Connecticut shore this coming season. Photos will follow.
Future projects will include the rewiring of the DC Circuit and the addition of an AC Circuit to the boat, redesign of the distribution panel to the area between the stbd settee and pilot berth, move batteries to stbd rear settee, addition of 1000W inverter and relocation of battery charger both to be located behind the stbd settee back cushion.
Many of the inspirations for improvement are coming from Judy B's Bijou
A Catalina 27 Website
and Bruce H's Modifications to his 1978 Catalina 27 Sailboat, Hull # 3854
Welcome other ideas for projects.
