Tom-

based on your photos, it looks like the stanchion base on the port side may be the cause of the leak on that side. On the starboard side, it is probably one of the screws for the hatch.

I would add a backer block to shroud and use a longer bolt. Also use a fender washer if the the backer block is not metal.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I think you're getting good info, but FWIW, the Catalina 22 national association link is www.catalina22.org. Interestingly, there is no tech editor listed for this model in "Mainsheet," the Catalina magazine. Perhaps this is because of the large number of them that have been built.

Possible. I did re-seat and seal that stanchion this summer during my leak chase. That didn't fix it. Then I found the hatch was guilty. Like you say, it could easily be one of the screws. I'm going to do some work on that hatch flange and see what I can figure out.
I'll probably take all the deck hardware off too since I want to repaint the deck too.

Just a suggestion ... but you might want to put backing plates under all of those bolts that you had in the link - the washers are not enough to disperse all of the load. You don't want as much compression you are getting there.

Yep. That is on my list of things to do. It was like that when I got the boat, so it's nothing I did wrong, but I need to spread that load out some more.
Time to find that hack saw and a drill!
