"New owner of Cat 30 "Fandango" Mk.11, TRBS, #4348. Sail from our farm on east end of Lake Ontario, near Picton, ON. So far I am very impressed with my Catalina and expect to do more sailing in 2012. Will update my profile with pics."
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.
Metaphorically I am sailing on. My life has taken a turn down a new road. To encompass all that is going on Sea Knots might be limiting. Then again, the transition to sassea.blogspot.com is like sailing upwind against a current. It is as confusing as learning to sail. You might remember those days. Learning the foibles of a foreign language. Multiple meaning words like tack and phrases like 'fall off' were a bit mind boggling.Perhaps there is a closer resemblance to transiting from Sea Knots…See More
Hope all's well with you so far in this new year, 2015. I might start checking SK's a little more regularly now that some of the 'usual suspects' are checking in again. Sent you a hello on Yahoo Messenger…"
"The 400W of solar will be nice to have. I installed a 250w panel on top of the dinghy davits this fall. While we haven't given it the acid test initial impressions are it'll greatly extend time between recharging while anchored out. The…"
"I sent mine back to the factory to be changed when the MMSI from BoatUs was not valid when I added an SSB. There was an update to my VHF radio so erasing the MMSI and update was free except my shipping costs."
"Thanks for the feedback, what a great group to be part of! Love the activity of this group.
I have always wondered what the Aqua Sigma box was, but assumed it may be some sort of high water alarm - now I know it is a light switch! Hopefully I can…"
