I Recently Became a Catalina 22 Owner!

Hello, Just joined this forum today. Last week I picked up a 1976 Catalina 22 (hull# 6350) and brought her home to Tallahassee, FL where I will be getting her ready for the water. She is my first boat. I have crewed years ago in the past and have worked on a couple of boats as well. I am originally from the coastal village of Brightlingsea in England where sailing abounds, so it's about time I learned how to do it!

She's a swing-keel version and is a few jobs away from getting wet. I have a new keel winch and cable to install. Two large pieces of teak to join together and shape into a rudder and a new stainless mast seat. Other than some general cleaning and scraping - that's about it.

My first questions, and if anyone can guide me because I've not found much yet, is a good link for planing your own rudder and what airfoils people recommend for solid teak (it's about 2" thick). It's not going to be a kick-rudder and is currently close to 6ft in length!

The other question is how do I inspect the pivot at the bow end of the keel? Do I have to raise the boat and lower the keel, or is there another way to take a look? It seems that this is rather a lynch-pin of the whole boat and I would like to see it / replace it before I get her on the water.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Tim

Have one of my C 22's rudders in the garage for repair so did some measuring and drew up a diagram for the rudder. You might want to save that teak for another project as the rudder blade is made up of filler over plywood then covered with glass fabric/resin. I've made one to replace a broken blade and it is time consuming getting the shape right but not particularly hard to do. I would say that the original blade was way 'underbuilt' with only a thin piece of ply, lots of filler and a layer or two at most of glass fabric. I overbuilt the new blade. The blade is 1 1/2 inches thick at the most/mid blade and 1" at the head and foot. Shaped like a wing with a convex surface tapering to 1/4 " at the trailing edge. Go to Catalina22@yahoogroups.com and look in FILES/rudder
