Assortment of cheap fixes on Cat 22

Pump is one on the boat when I got it, but spout was missing. So I fabricated one out of copper tubing. All the others I have seen had spouts or handles or both too high to allow you to slide the galley back under the stbd seat like it is supposed to. Pix of fabricated spout.

Well I hope I do not have to get the boat ready for Dorian over here in Pensacola, course if it gets into the gulf we all suffer along the coast to Mexico.

Here is a really simple solution to stuff sliding off the table in the cabin underway. Put a piece of cheap rubber shelf liner on the table, it stays on very nicely and keeps stuff on top of it from sliding (except in extreme conditions , which or course you should have secured stuff for anyway.) Comes in nice colors too!

Just a suggestion, I put my extra fire extingusher in a mount on edge of portside aft dinette seat so it is to hand when I use the bistro stove in my pullout galley on the starboard side. Just in case of course! And el cheapo led flashlight on hook next to it for those deeply cooking pots of unkown.

Cooking with the original mood lighting of catalina 22, light under window away from stove area, a flashlight is handy to check cooking status in deep pots in dark!

A suggestion I have heard several times is to put the extinguisher at the exit because you should always get to an exit before starting to fight a fire.

Plus - it's also handy to grab from the cockpit.

Yep what is the old adage, if it aint broke dont fix it? Unless you are an engineer and want to take it apart to see how it works. Did that with an old mechanical alarm clock when I was about 10 years old, put it back together without about 3 parts and it still works today!

BTW when I redid the cushions in the boat I stuck down some carpet in blue color with double sided tape in cabin sole and step down in to the cabin.
