Greetings All from Central Texas
As mentioned below, its really dry here and I guess that worked to my advantage. After 20 years of not sailing, I took title to a very neglected '83 Catalina 22 30 days ago. After a lot of cleaning, a new genoa, battery, motor, and misc other items we have had the Dragonfly (previously called Sunset Cat) out now a half dozen times. Even stayed overnight once already.
There is still much to do like getting the swing keel to work, new paint, a head, a galley, etc but will not be able to do any of that until at least one ramp opens up somewhere on the lake and we can get her out of the water.
Until then, I'm looking forward to cooler temps in the fall and more days nursing this 'ol girl back to some of the luster she once enjoyed.
