Re: New York to Cape May ok for beginners?

You can sail all the way from Manasquan to Atlantic City on the inside, but there are like 7 drawbridges, a canal, and a lot of it is narrow winding channels with very shallow water on either side....

Re: Catalina 22 Headsail Selection

This isn't my experience either. I move on just my main. I find that shortening the main helps more with heeling than shortening the jib, and if I'm to the point where I'm only going to have one...

Re: Cam or Clam Cleats, re: Jib sheets

You don't have those on your C22? I thought they were standard equipment, but I didn't really think about it that hard.

Re: Had the boat two days, two problems already...

I have a furler, and it's ok. I got it second hand, and they made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Managing the foil when taking the mast up or down is pain, and the sail shape is probably marginally...
