Re: 150% genoa on Catalina 22

As a former C22 owner, I sprung for the tang from Catalina Direct to tie the stem plate to the bow eye. Don't know if I would have ever had a problem had I not attached the tang, but it sure gave me...

Re: Adjustable backstay on a masthead rig? Totally worth it!

I second the advise from Sailorman. I installed a backstay adjuster on my previous boat, a Catalina 22, and the effect was dramatic. Even though the C22 is a masthead rig, I was able to induce some...
