Re: Catalina model specification guide?

There's a huge range in values for a boat that age. $5,500 would be the high end for a boat in excellent condition inside and out, with newer sails and rigging and a solid outboard.

Catalina22.org is a great source for information and they have an interesting tool on their web site for calculating the value of older C22's. You can find it here - Boat Value Calculator.

And this site contains tons of how-to articles for the boat

Catalina 22's are great boats and there are a LOT of them out there. Don't be afraid to shop around a little. Just be prepared to kiss a lot of frogs to find your princess.

EDIT: Just noticed you're in Alaska. That may mean higher prices and fewer boats to choose from.

Best of luck,
Jim

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
