Main Message Board / sole: blackened areas
« on: February 21, 2020, 09:15:29 AM »
the 8 foot long sole piece has several blackened areas, I assume from water getting in underneath
I was going to replace it but I am told that what I measured as 3/8 is non standard and does not exist anymore...only 1/2 inch.
What is the standard thickness of the sole in our boats? Mine is hull 1022

Main Message Board / Catalina Smile
« on: January 07, 2020, 10:53:17 AM »
The Catalina Smile is back  :D . I have seen some discussion about this over the years.  What is the best way to handle?  I am reluctant to start grinding out any part of the keep and perhaps this is just a surface impurity.  What is your thinking on this.  (Video available but too large to post in the forum).

i am replacing my old Isotherm holding plate system which was never very reliable anyway; the condenser is shot. What is the size  in cubic feet of box? Mine is a 1990 boat. what system do people like and find reliable. I would love not to have to replumb the copper lines...and just replace the condenser

Main Message Board / Ye old windless question
« on: May 10, 2019, 01:56:22 PM »
I have done some investigating including the one done on a Catalina 1990 boat just a few hull numbers from mine. I have the same locker set up etc.
I have a new 35lb Manson anchor and older rubber covered chain (about 3 feet) attached to 3/4 inch line. In any event, I am looking for a good and reliable windless model. any suggestions. I like the Lewmar stuff but the one used in the tech post is not made anymore. Thanks very much

I noticed when I went to check out the boat that I failed to drain the hot water heater this year. So I promptly drained it!!  Any chance it survived?

I have inquired before but now its decision time
I have decided on Green Point Marine, Worton Creek
