Catalina 30 Clutch Cable

Hey All,

I have a 1986 C30 with a Universal M25 with Hurth transmission and Edson wheel with separte engine controls. The shifter has always been sloppy and difficult to shift into forward. I...

Re: ST40 Wind problem

Well, checking the connections is probably out. I don't want to have to pull the mast just for that.
Anyone know of anything else I could try? (Even if its a hail mary)...

Re: ST40 Wind problem

It is stand alone. We have the ST40 speed/depth but as far as I can see they are not hooked together in any way.

ST40 Wind problem

Hi All,

Since I have had my mast back up this year I am getting a 0.0 readout all the time on my ST40 wind instrument, even when the anemometer is spinning away up there. Accoring to the manual...

Re: Cleaning Teak

Did you try TSP? The black is probably from water not the oil and I don't think you want (or need) to get the oil out before varnish. Teak has natural oils in it that the varnish will seal in. There...

Re: Cracked Cockpit Sole

The cracking is on the side where the sole curves up. The plan is to put the teak over the non-skid and then fill the whole border that is around the non-skid with chopped glass and epoxy then gel...

Re: Cracked Cockpit Sole

When I say flexing in the sole I just mean the normal amount you get since there is nothing under it to support it. I had a guy look at it today who used to work for Tartan. He thinks that overall...

Re: Woody Wax

Thanks for that, is there anything you have found that works better? Is it better than nothing? We are in Ashtabula and it can be a constant battle to keep the boat clean from the dust.

Re: Woody Wax

I think I'm gonna try it, Defender has it on sale right now. If it makes the coal dust a little easier to deal with it will be well worth it.

Woody Wax

Anyone ever use it? We have a bit of a problem with coal dust at our boat club and I was thinking of giving it a try. Just wondering if it really works as good as they claim.

Thanks

Joe

Re: Cracked Cockpit Sole

Agreed but I will still need to address the crack in the gelcoat. If I was going to put teak down could I get away with just filling the crack?

Re: Cracked Cockpit Sole

Cracked Cockpit Sole

Hi All,

I had someone quote putting a teak sole in the cockpit of our 86 Catalina 30 the other day. He noticed a crack in the gel coat on the starboard side in the corner round that runs about 18"...

Re: Dock Boxes

Many thanks. That sounds like the answer and the price is right. I will head down to Lowes and check it out.

Re: Dock Boxes

Is it pretty sturdy? I bought one from Home Depot last year and it only had 2 small hinges on the lid and the first strong wind off the lake blew the lid off from the hinge side.
