ahgottabote

1977 Catalina 22
It's in great shape with a six month old bottom job and sails only a few years old.

Things I want to do:
  • repair cabin lighting
  • get opinions on condition of the keel (about half rusted on surface, but it is 37 years old)
  • sail around the world, someday

This is my first cruiser so my son (14) and I look forward to a big summer of sailing the Mississippi Sound and camp on the Barrier Islands.

Re: ahgottabote

Nice.

The swing keels are iron, and they rust like crazy. You could take it off and sandblast it or go after it with a wire brush and angle grinder and then quickly coat it in something, then fill and fair it, apply epoxy-like coatings, yadda yadda.

For mine, eh...I just try not to look at it too closely.

I would be more concerned with the keel's pivot pin and lifting cable, because losing either of those is bad news. Replacing the cable is not a big deal. Inspecting/replacing the hinge is a little more challenging, and I haven't even gotten to that one myself yet, but I did the cable.

Keel Cable, etc. | Sailing Fortuitous

Good luck with the boat.

(And remember, if the major stuff is safe - sail first, work later.)
