@Bljones - I decided to go with the scrub brush and a bucket of water route after inspecting all the little areas water could find it's way into bad spots. I did use the pressure washer to wash the soap off, but without it actually running. It made for an accurate spray without to much water getting in the boat to have to vac up later. Only did this for the lower portions though. The rest of it I used a crap load of rags and spray cleaner. Thank ya for the link.

T.J.

95 Catalina 30 Island Time

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

I certainly will Jim. I know the feeling. I wake up at 6am every morning, but have been staying up until 1am or so going through thread after thread reading comments and articles trying to soak up as much as I can. Then lie in bed for another hour thinking about what to do next. This is seriously cutting into my sleep. But it's worth it, as I've only got another 4 months or so to get finished before I make the move up north to Yankee land. Now if someone would turn on the heater down here I would be eternally grateful.

Finally back to work

Well, after a bit of a hiatus I'm finally back to work on the boat. Between a heavy work load, getting engaged and my fiance graduating Navy Basic there just wasn't any time. Glad to be making progress though. The picture attached is my buddies boat that he is restoring along side mine here in the hangar. Anyone know what it is???

Re: My C-22 Project

When I bought my c22 it was in really bad shape. Yours times ten with green mung on top of the black spots. I used a solvant called Purple Power it comes in a purple container and it is environmentally safe. Be careful, there is another called the same but not in a purple container and it doesn't perform. The Purple Power cleans everything and you can buy it at Napa Auto Parts.

Re: My C-22 Project

I just came across this thread and I'm curious about your trailer. I also have a Cat 2 and need to replace my trailer. One similar or identical to yours is available locally. It's an EZ Loader with side rails 15' long. To me, the trailer seems a little too short for the Catalina 22, but it looks like it works for you? Are you able to distribute the weight of your boat properly for towing? How has it worked out for you?

Thanks,
Ken

Re: My C-22 Project

Yes I can distribute the weight . I can drive down the highway 75 mph with no problem didn't even feel like I was towing anything.

Re: My C-22 Project

Thanks for the replies, guys.

As one more reality check, if you can look at the attached pictures and confirm back that the trailer looks to be equipped the same, I'd really appreciate it. I've inspected the trailer and it will need a couple hundred dollars worth of new bushings and such but appears solid with only slight surface rust. The tires are 4 years old. I called EZ Loader and they think it will work fine despite not having records back that far.

The next step would be to take my boat and his trailer to the nearest ramp and see how they fit together and what adjustments would need to be made.

Thanks again,
Ken

P.S. Sorry if I hijacked this thread

Re: My C-22 Project

it might work

Look at mine - the keel slides onto that wood beam and it bears a lot of weight.
