Re: Boat Sitting - Is it really an outrageous proposition?

I think there's a market, especially for people that may leave their boats in the islands for a few months or even weeks while they fly home to attend to business. Heck, maybe even Florida, the Keys,...

Re: Help me find my boat please.

Don't let being in AZ stop you, there are over a 100 sailboats at Lake Pleasant and a sailing school where you can get ASA 101 and 103 certified and rent Catalina 22's and 25's to your hearts...

Re: Sailing lessons

Re: Sailing lessons

I took ASA 101 & 103 having never prior being on a sailboat, it taught me everything I know. It also got me 50% off rentals on my home lake. Since the instructor was at that lake he signed my log...

Re: anchor tips to get it to catch?

I'm shocked everyone keeps enabling these two when they have no idea what they are doing, with a baby on-board no less.

The single most important thing when anchoring, IMHO, is the bottom you are...

Re: Standing Rigging tight enough?

IDK, that seems pretty loose to me, on my C22 we went 25 on the fore shrouds and 16 on the two aft shrouds. We have pretty light winds at my inland lake in Arizona.

Re: good faith money

There are no long lines at boats with people waiting to buy them.... Putting a boat on "hold" is silly. It'll be there this weekend and/or next weekend and probably the weekend after that too....

Re: Jib Sheet Diameter

5/8th's is way to big/heavy in light air you will not even get it across the deck. I'd just bought some too and found 7/16th's as a good compromise between feeling good in the hands and light enough...

Re: 87 Catalina 22

As a 1988 C22 owner I think the boat is well priced if everything as he says it is like the newer battery, cushions, sails, trailer and outboard.
