Has anyone done this? I am tired of the lifelines hanging in the water or the cockpit. Looking to be able to step off during docking. Any thoughts or photos of your install would be appreciated
Download it here. The app is searchable in the Google Play Store under Sailboat Owners.
Sorry iPhone/iPad users, we are still waiting on Apple. :(Click the X in the upper right corner to make this go away
Thanks gentleman, I am looking on the Catalina direct site for the gate stanchions as "a bolt-on option" if I can get the starboard side to mount on the port side to serve as the needed "extra stanchion"David
You are talking about adding stanchions. Your boat was initially designed with out stanchions. They were added based on public opinion and desired safety. You can add a single about 3 feet from an existing stanchion on the side of your boat.
This will require changing the lengths of the wires presently in place. Because it is a gate you need to have a brace on the stanchions. You can make the gate an easy hold by making it out of 3/8 dyneema. I did that on my boat and it is an excellent system.
