Hello from South Carolina

Hello

I have been sailing a Sunfish for the last 20+ years. Now at almost age 54 my wife and I decided to take the plunge and we purchased a 1987 Catalina 30 MKII. I am working on the boat meticulously to fix anything that I see needs a little attention.

So I am a newbie to this size boat and will appreciate any learning.

Looking forward to the fellowship and wishing you all to keep safe.

Welcome and Congrats

A lot of solicited and unsolicited knowledge here😀. We all started new.

There a great support Owners group for Catalinas. They can help with design specific questions and suggestions.

What will be your primary sailing area?

Keep us informed of you fun

Re: Hello from South Carolina

Thats a big step up. Nice Cat!! I sailed a Sunfish for many years, and I think it gave me a great feel for the dynamics of sailing.

Re: Hello from South Carolina

Thanks All for the comments.

I’ll be sailing on Lake Murray. Hopefully soon will get the mast stepped. Currently going through the mast wiring, replacing the old anchor light and deck/steaming lights with led fixtures. Anchor light was practically disintegrated. Next job will be to perform a minor repair on the muffler and a rewire on the engine harness to prevent the starting circuit from passing through the amp meter.

You are right. Great resources abound with technical information on this site.
