Re: Electrical Upgrades

The examples cited don't center on the use of LEDs and had much more dangerous factors.

Re: Catalina 22 shrouds.

Lucky,

Also consider borrowing or buying a Loos tension gauge and learn how to tune the C22 rig. It'll reduce wear and tear and sail better.

You're sure above the waterline is painted and not just oxidized gelcoat? They can look similar. The gelcoat can be restored by following Maine Sail's article on this site about compound buffing and...

Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

So here's what works best so far.
