is true about what B.O.A.T. means...but with a 25' it's only a 500. each time :-)

Thanks Kevin, yeah, that's just for rebedding. 110. each with new gasket from cd. gets pricey for 4.

Hi Kevin, still screwing around with the ports .... friend sealed two, one still leaking. Is it possible to buy just the gasket?? withouth the whole kit? Thinking about trying ourselves...company out here will do for 85.00 port without replacing gasket. Many have told me gasket doesn't do anything (interior) to keep water out, it's all in the proper rebedding. Thanks, Terri

Hi Kevin, My ports all fixed (what were they think'n??). Have seen the CD kit for them, will probably get it. Will attempt fix'n the leak'n one first and see how I do. then get brave and do the rest. Thank you! Do they have replacement opening ports for head and port across from it. small ones, figure may replace those w/opening for some cross ventalation. Also bought a solar air fan..all on the "when i get brave" list.. :-)

Hey Kevin! Hope you're doing well and sailing your Baby. I'm getting splashed soon, I hope... still freak'in cold up here! Going tomorrow to finish polishing the brightwork. Someone told me months ago about replacement gasket (?) for port lights. Mine have dried and are slightly leak'in..do you know where I can get?? Looked on Cat. Direct site, no luck. Thanks! Terri

Hi Kevin, Hope you're getting some sailing in. I might be ordering a mastgate from Catalina Direct.. When I derigged boat for the first time, took it off & put in a safe place...lol....gonna give it 4 more weeks to show up. I know it didn't go out in the trash...I always get in trouble with those safe place's. Next time, duct taped to the ceiling.

"Yep my boat is 8 years old, fresh water use only until last Aug, decommissioned for three years and the grease inside was more like a sticky paraffin wax if there is such a thing. Totally unacceptable. "

"I found that five wraps of line on the cabin top winch is required to prevent slippage and possible bending the stripper arm. I had one bend early on.  and replace it. Sam"
