    Loads on an adjustable backstay

    Excellent point about the 2:1 purchase with the V. I am planning on using the kit, but as I said I am always digging for more info than needed for a project. I guess I still would like anyone to chime in with the load numbers at different wind speeds that a 22 experiences. Cheers to all of...

    Loads on an adjustable backstay

    forgot to mention, that the weakest point that I can estimate right now is the 10' wire. if it is 1/8 x 7 x 7 stainless, Suncor shows a WL of only 272# which seems light to me.

    I just spent a good part of the evening removing rotted wood coring in the bilge area of my 77 Catalina 22. I started on the port side next to the volcano. underneath the fiberglass was about 1/8 to 1/4 inch of black rotted wet plywood. I then removed a section underneath the table. Under the...

    Restoration of 1981 C-22 swing keel #10580

    Re: Keel Off Congratulations on getting your keel off. I faired my keel two seasons ago. If you do a search by user (ancbob), you may find some helpful info/pics. For old compound removal, I purchased a cheap 4-1/2" angle grinder from harbor freight. It did a great job removing the old bedding...

    It's Time to Learn to Sail

    I would suggest finding an adult learn to sail class close to you. I did this about 7 years ago when I took up sailing, and it was totally worthwhile. In my location, Michigan, most of the local yacht clubs offer classes for a reasonable cost. The skills you will learn would apply to any size boat.
