Well for better or worse I've just aquired a 1972 C22, I think shes all thier, hull loock solid if not beat up, rudder is rusted and wobbling in the trunk and the rigging both running and standing is in need of some repair and or replacement of parts. I figured what the heck, the boat was a freeby on a decent trailer with a nice old 6hp Johnson hanging on the back and the sails are heavily used but look to be good for a few more years. Anyway I thought I'd introduce myself now because I'll probably be in here quite often during the refit process.
I've already ordered the Keel refit video and the manual/parts catalog from CD, started cataloging the work to be done and started reading up on techniques for hull refitting So here I/We go I look forward to talking to you all and cant wait to get going on this.

Thanks

Tim,
I'm in almost the exact same situation. I got a free '75 model with a running 6hp evinrude (but I had to buy my own trailer, $400 for a used Hunter 23 model). How's it going? Any major projects pop up yet. I have two. My compression post crushed at the dinette armrest, and my foredeck is spongy (although I probably won't tackle it right away, spring is coming!)

Don and Tim;

Some of us who've been there already have websites that show in detail (to one degree or another) what we did and how we did it. I think you'll find them most helpful.

Chip Ahoy website:
www.chipford.com

Slow Flight website:
www.slowflight.net/upgrades/index.html

I've got links to a few others on my Chip Ahoy site.

Chip,
I think I've viewed every page on your site. Are you a member of the National Association? Strange that your site isn't on their links page. Please keep it up, you're an inspiration to all of us keeping it small and affordable. My boat doesn't need too much to get on the water this summer, looking to cruise the Virginia barrier islands just outside the Chesapeake (when I'm not club racing)

This is a good forum and if you ask a question, you will get plenty of answers!
Good Luck

I don't believe any of the pics on http://www.fleet130.org/ are taken from other sites. They are either originals taken specifically for the tech seminars(about 95%), donated by people from this list(clubhouse) or Great Lakes Cruise participants. The origin of all donated photes is identified. There are links to several other popular sites containing photographs.

The wiring diagrams were created from barely legible original Catalina Yachts documents.

The electrical panel drawings were adapted from those provided by electrical panel manufacturers.

After Charlie Gjersvik's site was gone, the wiring and electrical panel diagrams were sent to Skip Meisch for his website. They are on the right side of Skip's wiring diagram page:

http://slowflight.net/upgrades/elec-wiring-layout.html

Those from Charlie's site are on the left.

We are always happy to host photos or tech tips anyone would like to share in out Tech Notes section:

Hi Erv,

Remember Tom & Tracy - green Catalina 22 couple of years ago in Sister Bay? Glad this year's G/L cruise went well. Join us some time for the Heartland of America Cruise!

Don, I've been a member of the C22NSA for two years, since I bought my boat. I couldn't find a links page on its site, but just sent along a picture of Chip Ahoy to add to the "Pictures" page.

Sailing in your area (Many years ago I cruised through it on my way to the Florida Keys from up here and back), I think you'll find the following story interesting, "The Catalina 22 Chesapeake Lighthouse Challenge." You can read it at:

Hi all
I trust the winter projects are coming along
I look forward to my first year on Lake Champlain
The keel is almost done
The 110v electrical is in
The solar panels are mounted
And the two trays for the stern are also done
As soon as the weather gets warmer Its time for the bottom paint and off we go
I figure late March before the ice melts and I can get in
I have a new digital camera from Santa clause this year and my web site will be up for the season
We should get great photos

Uwe
