    I am fairly new to sailing. My wife and I are actually taking our second lesson today! We purchased a 1974 Catalina 22 in very nice condition. The little boats that we are learning on are great and we have learned how to rig them but they are simple compared to ours. I have the orig manual that came with the boat, but it doesn't tell you how to do the rigging. Does anyone have a step by step diagram or know where I can find/buy one. Thanks for any input!

    Thank you JRacer, I have checked there but didn't find it there. I haven't reached out to anyone there yet.

    Ask your sailing instructor to give you a hand. But the person who sold you the boat should have shown you how to set it up.... since you probably don't even know if all the parts are there.
    Anyhow, I googled this for you? Good luck.

    @Sailingaway22 welcome to the forum.
    There are several references to links about the Catalina 22.
    What about the rigging concerns you?
    Where the lines run? How tight the stays need to be?

    Thank You everyone for the great advice. We bought her at an auction at our daughters elementary school, it was donated by one of the staff. She is complete. The diagrams and links are very helpful and our sailing instructor also offered to help if we run into problems. BTW winning bid was $450.00.
