Living aboard a 22

SUCKS.













Been slowly losing my mind over the past 7 weeks... anchored out in Miami. It's a beautiful spot, but it's definitely not worth being a shower whore over.

Slowly trying to refit her at night and on the weekends, first thing done was extending the bunk to the bulkhead. What a difference that has made, I could actually fit 2 people in the bunk comfortably now... Figure sail stowage under where the head used to be. Just gotta figure out where to put that damn thing now. The easiest fix would be to find a woman who wouldn't mind going swimming and feeding the fish on the weekend cruises.

My biggest headache are the windows, every single one of them leaks. I pulled one, cleaned up the gaskets, painted the frame black and tinted the glass. Then it rained and then it started to leak again. AGGGGHHHH.
It obviously has to do with the gaskets, so if anyone knows where to get them, please let me know. (my internet is almost non-existent)

Again, if you have any ideas, tips or suppliers of gaskets please don't hesitate to call me, I'm tired of living damp.

Hey... I lived on a Catalina 22 for six months in the winter in Puget Sound...

Not exactly comfortable, but OK....

Of course it was colder for me, but at least I was at a marina!

Good luck and hang tough,

David

Exclamation Let me help you stay Dry!

I used to live on a 24 San Juan, and had the same problems with rain coming through windows as well in Ft. Myers, Florida. the problem is an easy fix! all you need is some 3M 4200 Fast Cure Marine Sealant, It works well for 10-12 months and then you have to do it all over again but it will keep you dry, and it only costs like $18.00 a tube, and a cheap caulk gun.

I live on a 24 islander bahama. It's pretty comfortable, and dry.
