Sailboat maintenance in So. Wisconsin
Need to do some work on an old Catalina 22 (keel, new roller furling jib, rigging inspection). I live in Madison, WI and would love any suggestions on a good place to have the work done. Thanks in advance. Mark

I had a C22 I sailed on L. Mendota a few years ago. I don't know about repair facilities, having done work on the boat myself. I tend to muddle through most projects, but, if you need help with anything, shoot me a PM.

Mark, check out Ryan off of the Belt & Todd drive: Mad Sails - Madison Wisconsin - Full Service Sail Loft - Flying Scot Sails - Ullman Sails Dealer

Mark, sorry, I thought you were talking about sail work for some reason.

I also am in Madison, and have a 86' Catalina 22, up on Mendota.

I'm looking into a CDI furler like this one: CDI Flexible Furler FF2BB (29' Max Headstay) Apparently you can put these on without too much trouble, just runs up the existing stay. From asking around, the "cost" of these I'm told is around $440, so having someone buy it for you and expecting them to put it on for you if they can only charge $480 to keep up with internet pricing isn't reasonable.

The people at the "Boat House" have always been nice when I've gone there for misc parts, but haven't had to deal with pricing on service so can't help you there: Home

I have had good luck with Southwind in Milwaukee. Tell them Roger from Reboot sent you.
