line cleaning

I have run my c 27's lines (exept the wire to rope halyards) through the washing machine at home 4 times in the past ten years with no noticeable ill effects. I've never used a bag or special soap. I just heap them in, throw in some tide as usual and they come out looking spectastic, tangled but spectastic. I don't think i'd reccomend the dryer though.

Good ideas

Dro --

Thanks for the tip. Maybe I'll soak the rope halyards in soap with a touch of Lysol, agitate, rinse, and air dry. Truth be told, I should probably invest in an industrial barrel of Lysol to clean this girl up.

Still looking for a mainsail, (almost) any condition.

I've got a 1980 Cat 27. Thinwater, keep an eye on craigslist. I remember when I was boat shopping (about 2 months ago) somebody was selling sails off a cat 27... I just checked and didn't see any though. You might try craiglook.com (not affiliated) it provides a more powerful search.

Craigslook

NW --

Craigslook is like a search engine for Craigslist, and it lets you search nationwide instead of one market at a time. I've found a guy who has several C-27 mains for sale and we're just making sure that the slides and measurements match. BTW, I'm in North Carolina. Any other east coast Cat sailors?

Yeah that's what I was trying to explain. I guess I didn't do a very good job.

As to our own forum, the way I see it, the Catalina forum is the Cat 27 forum. Everybody else has to use the sub-forums

I have been on Sailnet for awhile and rarely see any comments about C-27s. Usually have to go to the Catalina 27/270 Association to get any conversation. Glad to see some fellow C-27 owners here. I am already seeing some real experts here that will be sharing their experiences with us.

As for me, my girl is a 1976 Catalina 27 #2684. She is being completely refitted and rebuilt. It took forever for her to dry out. But I can finally give her the love and attention she has been craving for so long.

I live in NW Louisiana and she is the "Other Woman."

Hey Ed - I've got #2079. I really enjoy sailing her. C27s rock.

You Catalina 27 owners could do as I did for my Tartan 27. I started a Yahoo group called T27Owners. The Group allows you to upload photos, post files, links, databases etc. It is free to set up but someone has to do it and be the owner/moderator. I nominate Smackdaddy for the job!
You do need to set up a Yahoo id to use the Groups function.
T27Owners : Tartan 27 Owners Yahoo Group

Alternatively, there is a Catalina owners group over at SBO, CatalinaOwners.com - Home
which serves all the models.

Or, you can stay right here.
