Re: My 1st boat, 1979 22 Catalina, swing keel...need some advice

I am currently working on the boat and trailer. To date I've done:

1. Step the mast. This was not as hard as I thought. I came up with a clever system (after reading lots on here, with a 1.5 ton crane hoist). Lucky me, I work in construction, so it's easy to get tools like that.
2. New tires on trailer ($200 Fu$&ing bucks).
3. Rigged her all up with sails and all, in the desert but wanted to ensure she is ready before 1st splash in Aug.
4. Re-wired electrical (electrician friend helped)
5. Cussed and drank.

I'll keep posting as it gets better.
