Re: Looking at a Catalina 28-2, 1997
OK, thanks for the encouragement.
This boat has probably not been overnighted for years, and the anchor was basically a lunch hook. And here I am adding all this weight to the bow with a Rocna 15 and 50 ft of 5/16 chain, not to mention 200 ft of 3 strand nylon! In a way, it's a bit of a heartbreak to add all this weight forward but, to go cruising, I gotta have it. All the old guys on the dock are telling me to put the boat in this race, or that race, and we may do one, just to learn how much we don't know! But the focus is, for me and the Admiral to be back on the water, together, after 5 years of sea kayak camping all over Vancouver Island. She now has a congenital shoulder problem that precludes paddling.
I'm not sure how to post pics here but maybe there is a thread on how to do that, or you could explain it if not too much trouble.
