    Yanmar SD20 Saildrive

    Since the Yanmar SD20 saildrive is a major component of the C275, I thought I would create a separate thread. Probably should have done it when the upside-down-engineered pin fell out (see problems). Thought I would address an item that most people are not aware of and should be on everyone's...

    Solar Panel

    Is everyone happy with their built in solar panel on the C275? I chose to go without worried about collecting dirt (being under trees) but mostly, that the manufacturer would stop offering the equivalent size for replacement. The technology is changing so quickly that you just don't know what...

    Pimp my C275

    Seeing that the moderators were gracious enough to create our own C275 group, I figured we need to take advantage of that. Anyway, I've done probably nearly a dozen mods to my C275 (some small, some bigger) and wanted to create a thread that all C275 owners could post their mods for others to...

    Calling all Catalina 275 owners

    Seeing that we are a small group of C275 owners and rather scattered, I thought I would start the first thread in this newly created group as a place to introduce yourself. That said, I'm the owner of hull #14, purchased in June of 2014. The boat spends its summers in Wilmette Harbor, IL about...
