I'm an old sailor, new owner of a old Catalina 30, docked at an old Matlacha, FL marina. Like to join your Catalina group.

I would be interested as to how it comes out Pretty lady, been thinking about a hard Dodger for Surprise.
Comment by SV Pretty Lady on October 29, 2009 at 2:08pm
New project! Building a hard dodger using the existing 1" SS tubular frame with some minor mods. I'm making this up as I go. I'll post pics as it takes shape.

Hope you always have favorable winds! Enjoy

After about two years of research, we are the proud new owners of a 1980 Catalina 30 tall rig. The boat needs some repairs (all common to Catalinas so expected), but so far the enjoyment/repair expense balance is still heavily favoring enjoying the boat tremendously. Our sail from Annapolis where we bought the boat to our marina couldn't have been more perfect. The rain stopped just long enough for us to have favorable winds and lots of sun on the four hour trip up the Chesapeake. We'll have lots of planning, list making, and more research to do before getting underway again in the spring and I'm loving every minute of it!

Hello All! I have to take my pushpit off due to a weld letting go on the forward port post. Noticed a hairline crack in april about 1/2 " long. This does not look like an easy access job. Anyone ever do it? Unfortunatley my furling line is lead back to a block attached to. Will use winch & cleat for now I think. Thanks! Terri

I am so glad I don't have to winterize but I sure wish I had open water like a lot of you guys have.

"I had to replace my sheeve on both sides and really struggled to get the bolts out. Once I had them out, each was bent thus the challenge. I ended up stripping one or two of the hex bolts and used an angle grinder to square off the head of the bolt…"

B43 Traveller

The starboard side of my Traveller is starting to lift up. I am guessing to remove the center 5mm Allen bolt that goes through the middle of the sheeves, although I cannot get it to budge, to access it. Does anyone have any experience with this??Thanks Dave B43 Shore's AdriftSee More
