HAH! (Finally)

My much better 1/2 took pity on me and let me buy the Catalina 22 I've had my eye on for awhile:

1980 Swing Keel, trailer etc....

I bought the boat from the original owner and it (the boat is all there and well cared for)

I grew up sailing a Tartan 30 and 37 but this boat will be a trailer sailor. The bottom is painted with something that looks like old fashioned shellac (it's not bottom paint) any idea what this is? A barrier coat? There are no blisters that I can see but I'm not 100% sure what I am looking at.

Anyone in South Florida want a free lunch for a point towards an honest marina?

Thanks!

Tim

(Now make all the Catalina 22 jokes you want but I OWN it and it is ready to sail AND I can keep it at home..... AND it was inexpensive!)

Congrats on the new boat. Don't worry, CD- has the only Catalina really worth making fun of.

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.

Have sailed with a friend's Catalina 22 and really enjoyed it... He made a really nice looking box to mount his camp stove that slid under into the quarter berth on the starboardside.
We knocked it down to where the spreader touched the water, but she came right back up. That heavy swing keel did the trick on that one.

Here she is... dirty, very dirty!

The 2nd and 3rd picture show the 'shellac' looking bottom paint.. The dark red bottom paint just washed right off, leaving this shellac looking stuff over what 'looks' to be the gel coat....

Thanks for all the encouraging words all they really help!

Congratulations on the new boat. Hope you get to use as much as you wish, and enjoy it twice as much.
