Re: Fixing a Separting Deck. Poor Man's Way.

Paul,

Do you have any instructions on stepping the mast? I just got a Cat 22, and i'm struggling to get her up. I have help, so the wieght isn't the issue. Here is what I have accomplished on the stepping process...
1). Move shrouds/stays around for easy access as mast comes up
2) rolled mast and set bolt in step
3) lifted with all my might (not much I add)
4) cursed/screamed/yelled...
5) had some beer
6) writing this post...

that is more or less what I need too. As a Marine, I need clear cut instructions to do tasks. Muscles Are Required, Intelligence Not Essential

Only connect the aft stays. Once it's standing, then connect the front two. That's what i had to do anyways..

Also, on a completely unrelated side note.. Were you guys aware that solar panels do not float.. actually they sink as soon as they hit the water.. just a little FYI.

Re: Fixing a Separting Deck. Poor Man's Way.

I tiewrapped pool noodle segments to each end of my solar panel, and a floatie keychain to the cable. now it doesn't sink as quickly and is easy to find when it does go overboard.

Re: Fixing a Separting Deck. Poor Man's Way.

Damn! I guess I need to get a swim noodle to attach to my sunglasses. Lost a pair last weekend. Who knew that sunglasses sink? If I was really brave I might get my ears pierced so I could wear some small hoops that I could attach lines to the legs of my sunglasses... or buy/make some croakies.

Nice work Paul - even if the Don Casey/ABYC chorus may grumble.

Re: Fixing a Separting Deck. Poor Man's Way.

ha, let them grumble. it still floats and sails. Dip the winches in the water regularly, so seems to have worked for what i do with it.. Not the mention the two additional cleats are nice to have.

Great idea on the solar panel. I mounted mine to the top companionway slat and throw it up on top of the companionway hatch when i'm sailing. I put a little clip in the mast, and hook it to the hasp on the slat. Sounds confusing, I'll post a picture. Works for me, and gets a little sun while I'm sailing.
