New keel nuts. ( old ones were rusted)
Ajusted the quadrant much tigher now.

So what are your questions?? Just keep giving all your money to your boat repair guy. No worries be happy

If the boat is older than 86 I think your Catalina smile may be caused by rotten wood under the keel bolts which should be replaced. It is a known issue with older Cat30's

Sailboats are like beautiful high maintenance women...They take all your money.. Give you plenty of work to do..even make life miserable at times...But once ya get em heeled over its all worth it..:p
