Not at all - you just screw the thingamajig into the groovey part of the tall tube thingy.

Re: Strange Catalina 22??

Not sure if this thread is dead or not, but I'd like to second David's comment about the benefit of using a plate versus a sail stop:

"It allows you to get the main closer to the boom while furling/reefing, which is nice."

My boat is similar to a C22 and I have helped friends shake down their C22s fitted with sail stops. Flaking their mains at the end of the day is a pain compared to what I'm used to. My main flakes entirely on the boom which is nice.

Go with the plate - they can't be that expensive!

FWIW, Bob

Re: Strange Catalina 22??

If being technical, then just drill a hole and throw a stainless screw just below the thingamacluck and job done...

Re: Strange Catalina 22??

Those dohickies require a 'thingachabob' in place for them to stay on the whacamacallit.
Don't y'all love techinical terms
Now we will return to our normal channel.

I bought and installed one on my C22....

Nicely built, but, as you can see... expensive.

It allows you to get the main closer to the boom while furling/reefing, which is nice.

If I had to do it again, I would buy one.

Thanks Gentlemen

AH-HAH!! One Doohickey deserves another. It all is crystal clear to me now.
Thanks,

camaraderie The sail slides are generally fed in before raising the sail then another do-hickey that looks like a thumbscrew attached to a sail slide is slid into place and tightened to hold the slides in place.
You can easily fabricate a simple stopper if the one on the boat is gone.

Ahh...GB beat me to it while I was typing! Exactly!

GeorgeB What you are looking for is a “Sail Track Stop” and you can get them at places like West Marine or Defender. The “Doohickeys” are called sail slugs and you prefeed them into mast slot and lock them in place with the sail track stop (you can do this at the dock). Then you can hoist at will from the cockpit. Especially on small boats, the mainsail folds more compactly on the boom if the slugs are let out of the slot at the end of your sail. A previous owner must have misplaced the stop as it is rather small. The C22’s originally didn’t have sail slugs but instead, you had to and feed the bolt rope up the slot. Needless to say, you had to do all of this from the mast. The sail slugs makes it more convenient.
