attaching letters and insignias

I recently installed two Catalina 22 insignias on my main, and they are already peeling off after the first sail. I think one problem was that I installed them on brand spanking new sails, so that...

large dog ramp for Catalina 22

I have a 100 pound black lab whom I would love to take sailing. He already has a doggie life jacket with a handle on the top, but lifting his big butt over the side every time does not sound...

re-sealing stem fitting on Catalina 22

I recently had to remove my bow stem fitting from my Catalina 22 in order to install the stem reinforcement as well as an anchor roller. There was a very adhesive silicone-like compound holding the...

bottom paint

I have a Catalina 22 that spends essentially 100% of the time in a freshwater marina. I sail it about twice per week on average in a freshwater lake. I am a casual daysailer and not a racer. I...

Re: loose footed main - attachment question

Sounds great. Thanks for the help. I'll order the loose foot with a slug at the clew. As long as there's a clew cringle I should be able to rig up any of the above systems if needed in the future...

Re: loose footed main - attachment question

Thanks for the reply. So with the outhaul car in the photo, you'd just have a line to pull the car aft to add tension as opposed to pulling on the clew itself like with a single slug near the clew?...

loose footed main - attachment question

For my new sail I am purchasing a loose footed main, and I am trying to decide what, if any, attachment there needs to be at the aft end of the boom. It seems that there is one of three common...

150% genoa on Catalina 22

By far the most common genoa size that I have seen for sale for Catalina 22s have been 150%, especially for the hank-on variety which is what I have. I found some old posts on a very outdated message...

Re: new sails

Yeah, the Coastal Main was what I was looking at. The customizations and shipping quickly bring the price up to about $1100. I went ahead and put in a specific question as to the difference between...

Re: new sails

Re: new sails

Thanks for all the replies everyone. One thing I'm coming across (especially with Precision Sails) is the ability to choose radial weave vs crosscut. The radial weave is obviously superior but more...

new sails

Well, I had already been thinking about buying a new main, and after taking the boat out in some pretty breezy winds the other day, I think my 30+ year old sail had had enough and wound up ripping...

Re: single line reefing question

I understand the mastgate completely, and I'm curious about the jacklines. Are these two designs to be used in tandem, or is it typically one or the other? Seems like the could both be used...

I have a picture showing my problem/question, but I do not yet have enough posts to be allowed to post photos or links. So I am going to try to ask my question using very careful descriptions.

Re: old sails?

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I'll try to address as many responses as possible.

My boat is a 1985 Catalina 22. The main does have battens. Now, CURRENTLY one of my battens (2nd from the...

old sails?

I recently bought a 1985 Catalina, and I'm fairly certain that the sails I have are the originals. No matter how much I trim in or let out the sails and no matter what direction the wind is coming...

Re: double line vertical fairlead

Well, I am going to defer to the wisdom of the more seasoned sailors here. Probably not a bad idea, considering when you add up the number of clutches and blocks and line and everything else I'd...

Re: double line vertical fairlead

Well, I pretty much sail singlehanded and am new to sailing, and the other day I got caught off guard in quite a bit of wind. Not enough to rattle a seasoned sailor, but it was hairy enough for me. ...

Re: double line vertical fairlead

I had certainly thought about running them down the starboard side, but I actually plan on running another series of lines for other purposes down that side (vang, topping lift, reefing line, etc).

Re: double line vertical fairlead

The stacked blocks or fairleads or whatever I wind up using would be mounted near the "Amazon" logo, right when it clears the handrail. Then the lines would fan out from there into the clutch.

Re: double line vertical fairlead

Thanks for replying so soon. I didn't think of stacked blocks, but that could work. The four lines will be my mail and jib halyards and main and jib downhauls (I sail primarily singlehanded for...

Long story short, I am trying to run four lines aft to the cockpit, but I have a very narrow space in which to do it. I only have enough width to run two lines maximum side-by-side. What I am...
