Mark, sorry, I thought you were talking about sail work for some reason.

I also am in Madison, and have a 86' Catalina 22, up on Mendota.

I'm looking into a CDI furler like this one: CDI Flexible Furler FF2BB (29' Max Headstay) Apparently you can put these on without too much trouble, just runs up the existing stay. From asking around, the "cost" of these I'm told is around $440, so having someone buy it for you and expecting them to put it on for you if they can only charge $480 to keep up with internet pricing isn't reasonable.

The people at the "Boat House" have always been nice when I've gone there for misc parts, but haven't had to deal with pricing on service so can't help you there: Home
