Re: Catalina 22 Question regarding Swing Keel

I wanted to give a special THANK YOU to all of you that responded to my inquiries. I definitely appreciate your advice and input. I took a look at three other Catalina 22's, two on trailers and one at a slip. however all of them were in some sort of state of repair required. One was at the $2500. level and it needed the same wood work that the $1k boat did. I went back to the $$1K boat offer and took another look. I am happy to report that I decided to buy it because the clean up and repairs that it needs look minor and something that I believe I can do on my own. Thanks again and looking forward to sharing pictures of my new '22 out on the lake.

I may take it down to Galveston Tx around November to do some real OCEAN sailing on her. I just need to make sure I have all the cleanup and repairs done.
