Re: Catalina 22 rudder

I seem to remember that there was a pin through the bottom of the uppermost pin??? It's been some 23 years since I owned a Catalina 22 though.

Re: Alligator River Bridge closed at Mile 84

Are you referring to the passage around Roanoke Island? The west passage has a 43' fixed bridge and the east passage has shallow draft on the northern end.
