"Hey, Hey, its supposed to warm up here for the first time in several weeks, so I am headed to the lake might unwinterize the whole boat, well most of it, lol...I am getting the fever, but will go sailing thats for darn sure..... time to get that big…"
"Welcome aboard Joe! I'm sure you'll love your C-27...they are relatively fast,well mannered, and comfortable. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Being fairly new to sailing, I usually defer to others for advie, but once…"
I am a new boat owner, still learning the ropes, but I hope to take my Catalina 27 cruising some day soon. For now I know the San Francisco Bay area has much to teach me, so I am content there...for now.
Sacramento Delta, Long Beach, Ventura, Santa Barbara.
Polish my skills so I can cruise in the future, maybe to Hawaii.
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
Hey Kevin, went out this weekend, all day sat, n half day sunday, wow, what ride, sat winds 20-25, puffs 30, what a ride, sunday was nuts started out same as sat, then when I went to come back was blowing 25-30 with the highest clocked 41.1 knts, what a ride, put the 2nd reef in the main, amazing day, love that boat was a real thrill. well got to get some rest talk to you later.
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.
Uncovered the boat yesterday, getting her ready to go, while checking things out I noticed that the Rule bilge pump was inop. Checked with the meter and no power. Can someone please tell me where the fuse for this pump is??Thanks DaveSee More
I had the same issue last season, it ended up being the micro switches in the remote. Tried to find a replacement switch to no avail. Check the switch with a meter to see if they are ok. If they are bad, give the windlass manufacturer a call,…"
"Mike I assume it won't go down. There's a small green relay mounted on the engine just behind the alternator. Usually they fail so the windlass will either raise or drop the anchor. It's possible that it could cause it to quit working…"
