    Electrical Refit Done!

    I think I am going to piggy back your ideas on this SD. I recently acquired an 86 boat and plugged in yesterday am for the first time. The only lights that worked were the bow and the deck lights. Checked all the fuses and everything looked okay. Checked the bulbs in the cabin... okay. The...

    bow eye 1986 Catalina 22..

    JGuy, did you ever come up with a solution? I have the same problem. My plan is to cut a 4" Deck Plate in the front of the Anchor Locker as low as I can get it. I found this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HXHUK8U/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The opening...

    Bow Eye

    Anyone replace or worked on the bow eye on an 85 boat or later? I have to cut an access through the anchor locker and need some guidance on how large a hole to cut. I was thinking 4.5 in should be plenty?

    Finally replacing my keel cable. What's with all this extra length?

    I just recently acquired my 86 22. The keel cable was broken so I replaced the turning ball, hose and clamps too. I could not get the new hose to seat all the way down on the through hull. Have y'all seen that too? I guess I could have tried a heat gun. I think it is down far enough for the...

    Sail Number?

    Is my sail number part of my HIN? I know... it is on the sail dummy. I have not raised the sail since I bought her a few weeks ago. Performing lots of fixes. My girl has been neglected.

    Keel cancer?

    Rustlok 6980 Steel Primer. Keep in mind I did this while on the trailer. I lowered the tongue to the ground and supported the back with pallets then raised the front with a floor jack so my keel would lower. I was replacing my keel cable as well. You cannot get all of the top of the keel but...

    Keel cancer?

    Before and after needle gunning and sanding. Used a primer from Petit called Rustlok. Must be good stuff.... I can't get it off my hands. This is the keel primer West Marine CPP Antifouling Paint recommended. I got this boat in Oklahoma. I think it had been in the water for 10 years. This...

    Loos Gauge near Canyon Lake?

    Well that is fair. It's only $150 at the Corpus Marina. I am only about 10-15 miles from Canyon. Guess I will have to get good at loading an unloading to save that slip fee.

    replacing the keel winch wire.

    I haven't read the other replies but I saw this on another site and put my own spin on it. A guy made 2 stands out of 2x4's to support the stern bottom. He lowered the trailer to the lowest point and then placed the stands underneath and then jacked up the front of the trailer with a floor...

    Keel cancer?

    Needle gun worked fantastic. I only had a pancake compressor so I had to wait for the pressure to build up occasionally. I think my boat had been in the water for 10 years. No wonder it was all scaled up.

    Keel cancer?

    I recently acquired an 86 in similar condition. What you need is a needle gun/ descaler. I bought this one on Amazon. Harbor Freight has a cheaper one. The one I bought is just like the ones I used in the USN in the 80's. Great training program for doing bottom jobs. lol. Finish with...
