Getting Very Close!

I've spent the last two months researching heavily the Catalina 25, and looking at every ad I can find to compare prices, condition, local markets, etc. I honed in on an '82, SR/FK/Traditional at my preferred local lake, and after 2 inspections (mine and a professional) my contingent offer has been accepted! Now it's down to the haul out and bottom inspection, and we're trying to set that up for Wednesday. If it goes well, I'll have my new (to me) boat, and will be sailing her this weekend!

Nice Joe,

What does the SR/FK mean for your C-25? Here is the one I picked up last fall.

I have some pics but I'll wait and post 'em up after the haul out. Hopefully I haven't jinxed it by posting too soon!

SR = Standard Rig as opposed to Tall Rig
FK - Fixed Keel as opposed to Swing or Wing Keel
Traditional - Interior with port/starboard settee rather than Dinette or L shaped.

Nice looking boat ya got there! She looks really clean....

Doh, that is a little too easy,

The old man has been polishing the bee out of it, she came out pretty good. There are a few low lakes that might get a visit soon, but I am afraid her home dockage is still frozen at least another 5 weeks or so.

Thanks for the info and good luck on yours.

1984 #4558 with a new hard smooth bottom paint, interlux v-127. It has been in the shop all winter getting buffed out.

Haul out and cleaning went very well. The thick green furry mat blasted away to reveal light blue paint. No blisters! Rapped all over the hull, nice sharp sound everywhere. All thru hulls solid, no leaks...we're good to go. All that's left is the paperwork and funds! I'll have a new (to me) boat this weekend!

Well lets see her, Joe. Did you get her??


On a side note, I am not sure how much longer for us. Hoping earlier than sooner.

Here are a few pic from this weekend and I think winter might be around for awhile. The picture is the first 2 slips of the dock 6 total. The little humps. 2nd is the pier/landing.





out JD
