Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

We did this on our Catalina 22 just last weekend! (Minus the queen air mattress.)

Re: So where the heck do you shower???

It was rainy here today, but I jumped in anyway. I had a brush and scrubbed away some of the waterline scum. Does that count as a shower? Probably not, since I started the day without algae in my...

Re: Do the Cat 22s, and the S2 26 footers, etc., use spinnakers?

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

At $75 it's something like 1/20 the cost of roller furling... I think it will be nearly as convenient.

Re: Most Exhausting Delivery thus far

RockDude, we all understand. You're awesome and so are your kids. Anyone who isn't as awesome must suck. All Americans make 70k right out of college, and if they don't it's their fault. Got it.

Re: safe cooking
