tilted transducer angle

I have a 1985 Catalina 22. Anyone know if an in-hull depth transducer should be tilted for best results? And if so, at what angle?

I have a 1985 Catalina 22 and I am interested in installing a sound system. By far the most common setup that I see is to have two flush mount speakers installed on the cockpit wall from the inside,...

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...

Re: loose footed main - attachment question

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...
