Main Message Board / Catalina Electrical control panel
« on: June 19, 2018, 01:35:14 PM »
I got hit by lightning a couple days ago. I have had the surveyors and tech people out and have my claim started with boatus. One item that was damaged was the electrical  control panel over the chart table. I have seen these for sale somewhere but ? Cannot remember where and really want the correct panel. The tech guys said they were not sure where to get one. I have a C34. 1988
Help

Main Message Board / New lens for lewar ports
« on: February 15, 2017, 05:14:44 AM »
I think someone on this site had someone who made replacement lenses for the ports in the Catalina 34 a few years ago and offered to sell some. Mine are so crazed it is hard to see out sunny days. Would like to ge new ones.
On another note i found a retired guy who does canvass and sewing projects here and he agreed to make me replacement curtains. He is using the set up and materials from the sailnet people. I will post them when i get the finished product. .

Main Message Board / curtains for Catalina 34
« on: February 02, 2017, 10:05:28 AM »
I want to replace the original curtains on my C34 in the main cabin.. they are the ones that slide on a track and have vertical pleats on them. Anyone know if anyone still makes them? as replacement parts?

I have gotten all I can from the original curtains on my 34. I would like to replace them with identical ones. they are the slide on horizontal ones, with vertical pleats, that fit on a track. Anyone know where I can get a new set. ?

I have one of the mermaid systems and it works well. You need to check it now and then to make sure it is running free and not clogging up.

Main Message Board / BLASTING THE HULL CLEAN
« on: October 31, 2015, 06:34:07 AM »
I am having my 1988 hull sodium blasted next week when it comes out for bottom paint.They use a little glass bead or something that is gentile with the hull and have been very busy with this in this area. I went over and checked out the process viewing boats being blasted, boats done and with the first coat of barrier coat on them and then the finished product. It does appear they have this system working well. I have always put interlux  micron 66 on my bottom and get 3 years on it. However, the boat yard said my canal gets a lot of fresh water run off in it and this paint (they said) does not like fresh water. It may be the cause of the paint flaking in some areas. (which is why I am doing the blasting, to take it off.)
They are recommending a sherman Williams paint that is about 1/2 the cost and would be a savings of about $450 on the job. I am in tropical climate here in Naples Florida and have had this boat for 9 years with good results. Anyone of you have any recomendations or thoughts I might swant to consider? (I have NO BLISTERS) They start on Monday so if you have input please respond.
Thanks, Terry

I installed the tack tick wireless ones. they have worked well. I did have to have a new spinner part replaced after the 4th year. (the cups that spin around telling speed. the bearing wore out) I like them. No wires up the mast and you can take the displays below at night and still see the wind speed, direction etc. No problem with the solar batteries. I think ray marine bought them out now.

I bought a new hatch from bowmar a few years ago very cheap. You might search the site here for cost and sites. I think several people have already been thru this.

I have a xantrex 40, this after 3 promariner chargers , a 15 , a20 then a40. All failed within a few months. This was years ago but have to say the xantrex has done the job for me. I bought it after a big discussion on this forum regarding battery chargers.

Could your stays or shrouds be too tight and flexing with the temperature? Maybe they are moving the mast or maybe they are actually stressing the fiberglass? you might check their tension with a gauge. It appears from your posts the sounds are coming from stress on the boat somewhere.
Having lived in a house in a cemetery for many years (no more though) I know "haunted" and I don't think this sounds like it is a haunted boat. ( that is another story)

I added a galvonic isolater in my boat to stop eating zincs. I was putting on 2 thinking it would last longer. Not the case. I asked the owner of the "yard" here who said he thought that adding extra zinc accelerated the problem. Just what happened to me.

I have davits on my boat. They are great for hauling the dinghy. I have had a bauer 8', a walker bay with tubes and now an avon air 10. All ride great on them. I can easily see over the boat. Much less drag, much less. Especially motoring in the IC no towed boat to watch and a knot more speed at least.
Only problem is my 1988 has a reverse transom and hauling the ding up over the first 2 feet is tough. After that it is easy.
