Re: Examining Catalina 22

As much as I love Catalinas, I'm hearing alarm bells on this one.

At 8lbs. per gallon, water in the bilge can create huge strains on a hull if the boat is on a trailer or jack stands. Even if the FG pops back after the water is drained, there could still be damage.

Drain plug? I'm quite familiar with C-18 and am purchasing a C-25 now (both fixed keels). I don't know of a drain plug on either one. I can't believe that Catalina would add one to the 22 but not the others.

If the PO added one:

1. I need to rethink my stance on captial punishment.

2. In my best Gandalf voice: "Run! You fool!"
