Haha, you won't be "removed", keep trying, on All Sailors, or bring the Cat 18 people here! There are 47 owners registered here, 23 owner reviews, check the Owner's Resource page:

If you have Facebook, there is a Catalina 16/18 owners group. Log into Facebook | Facebook Don't be discouraged by lack of activity here, there is likely activity somewhere, you just have to find it. I have noticed a trend in recent years that web forums seem to be frequented less in favor of social media groups. I know that all of the forums that I have been active in for 15-20 years, ranging from hunting and shooting to boating and wood working have pretty much died out in the past 5 years. Even the Catalina 22 forum here that used to be incredibly active has slowed to a crawl.

Hi! Yes not too much going on here,but then again there are not a lot of C 18's out there. Where I am located there are a lot of Catalinas but no 18's,other than mine. I also belong to a powerboat group (Striper Owners) that is very active.

Hey JA - yes you are correct. I joined the FB group and there seems to be alittle more action there. In the deep freeze here in SE Mass, so its nice to have some chat on C18s.

I am looking forward to this spring!

Here in South Jersey it is not very cold yet. We have a small cottage in Bass River/S Yarmouth. Just had the water dept.disconnect the water meter. Looking for a local contractor to have some work done over the winter but that is not going very well. I hope working on the cottage does not adversely affect my getting the boat in the water this spring. I do have a few small boat projects planned. Hope to be sailing again this coming season.

I noticed the activity difference in small and all boats. Sometimes if pertinent I post in "all boats "and my question takes off.
Also, if alerts and whatnot are not turned on the lower "basement" rooms are visited less.
