Catalina 22 Swing Keel wobble
Anyone know how much at risk my 1979 Catalina 22 is of losing the swing keel or experiencing hull damage if the keel wobbles and makes a pounding sound against the hull when it's moored? I would like to get through the season without changing the pin and installing shims.
Has anyone you've known lost a swing keel? What should I do if it happens -- cut the cable as fast as I can and let the keel sink?
I sail on Cayuga Lake in Ithaca, NY -- one of the finger lakes.
