plates

Yep. That is on my list of things to do. It was like that when I got the boat, so it's nothing I did wrong, but I need to spread that load out some more.
Time to find that hack saw and a drill! ...

Possible. I did re-seat and seal that stanchion this summer during my leak chase. That didn't fix it. Then I found the hatch was guilty. Like you say, it could easily be one of the screws. I'm...

Model

I did post this over there also, and got some comments also. My boat is a 1971 Catalina 22, hull number 880. It's one of the old "Hall of Fame" boats since it was one of the first 1,000 made. ...

Hehe! Yeah, you are probably right. I guess I'm probably a bit paranoid when I was poking around looking for trouble. There definitely is some delamination in that part, and found that when I...

Epoxy and forget!

I like that solution! I just need to figure out what condition the wood is in. I guess I need do drill holes. Ugh.

When I first noticed it, I thought it was much softer. Then I tried to measure it and noticed it was only about 1/4 inch - and that was right next to the hatch.
I have posted this message around on...

Question soft deck - Catalina hatch

I've posted this on some other forums, but just trying to find some ideas.

I put my camera on the step ladder tonight so the perspective wouldn't change while I did this. First I just put the tape...

Deck slicing

Yeah, I've been reading a bunch of stuff on the internet about this. Seems that I can somehow outline the wet part, overlap to the dry part, cut out a neat chunk replace the insides and put it all...

Leaks

Yeah, that is probably one of the next steps I need to try. I'm pretty sure a lot of water is coming from this hatch though. The water that puddles in the back is kind of a brownish "tea" color. I...

Question Forward deck hatch -- the dreaded soggy wood

I've been working on my new (used) Catalina 22 that I bought in February. I've been chasing down 3 cabin leaks and killed off 2 of the three at the source (outside the deck under fittings). The last...

Catalina 22 - build a galley??

Hello,
I'm the new owner of a Catalina 22 #880 as of last week. I'm working on cleaning the boat up and learning the ropes setting it up in my backyard.

My boat doesn't have the slide-out galley,...

Smile boat

Wow. That's definitely quite a bit more boat than the Catalina 22. That was the 3.0 liter Ranger also? :confused:

From all the advice that I've gotten, I think I'll probably go for this boat....

small towing vehicles

I'll just hook up my little toy RC car to it and run behind. Sounds like the Catalina 22 is an easy tow. Hehe! :p

I did upgrade from a bumper hitch (2000/200 lbs) to a class II hitch 3,500/350lbs. I didn't go higher than that since my truck is only 4,000 lbs.

What is the towing capacity of your truck? How much does she weigh?

My truck is about 4,000lbs, and I'm really not sure about the boat since I've seen different things listed - between 1800 and...

Yep. I did look at it last month (I took the photos) and it looked pretty good. The deck could use a little paint, but other than that it all looked pretty sound. I plan on tapping around the hull...

Catalina 22 -- closer inspection next week.

I'm still seeking my next upgrade from my old Lido. I looked at a Catalina 22 a few weeks ago and really liked it.
I've don a lot of research on this model boat, mainly to figure out of my 2WD Ford...

Question Keel

That does make sense. I've only been looking at a swing keel. I don't want a fixed keel since they are heavier, and launching will be more of a pain.
I wonder if the keel types are just sometimes...

Did you have to use the 4WD to pluck the boat out of the water?

Again it seems that about 8/10 trailer sailors say that a Ranger should do ok with a 22 footer. I think I may be researching this to death, but I just want to make...

Question Catalina 22 vs. Macgregor 22 (or similar sized boat)

I've been sailing an old Lido 14 (#201!) for many years, and feel that I want to move up to the next level to a larger boat that I can use for overnight trips and sail around in Puget Sound...
