Sailing Sun Run

Hello everyone. My name is Matt and I’m the new owner of a 1975 Catalina 27 named Sun Run. I’m new to the sailing community but I‘m excited to be a part of it. I’m currently in the process of restoring Sun Run as she’s pretty weathered but has so much potential. I would love to pull her from the water to clean/repaint her, but she didn’t come with a trailer and apparently no one around here moves them without a trailer. Anyone have any insider tips for locating one?

Re: Sailing Sun Run

Can you motor or sail to a yard? They can haul, block etc... and you can work on the boat.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

Since you didn't mention where "around here" is, it's pretty hard for anyone to give you any advice.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.

Yeah, good call. I’m from Fresno California. My boat is currently in a local lake and they don’t have a yard to haul out.
