What do you need to fix on your boat?

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

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

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..

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
