Stem Reinforcement Assy, C-22

Part #: D1741
Boats built before '82 had an inherent weakness: The forestay load was forward of the stem fitting's forward mounting bolts, supported only by the deck, in an area with many holes in a small space, all forward of the marine plywood reinforcement. It is common to see these Catalina 22's with stem fittings that are being pulled up from the deck.

By using our Stem Reinforcement Assembly you can reverse the rise of the stem fitting. A turnbuckle takes the load to the hull by the way of a tang mounted to your trailer bow eye.
If you boat has the old single bolt bow eye, we recommend replacing it with our D1126 Bow Eye "U" Bolt.
