    Reefing point suggestions needed

    Hi Jim, Was the length of the reefing line supplied with the Jiffy Reefing Kit long enough for your adjustment? Basically I got the kit from Sailrite and I'm planning to do the same adjustment like you but I'm suspecting that the line will not be long enough. Thanks for the idea and the...

    Slot seal strips for swing keel

    Thanks Charley. So I assume this new upgrade would stop water gushing in through the slot. I called Catalina Direct yesterday and they said 3 weeks back order and I called them 2 weeks ago and they still said the same. Do you think I can order them directly from Catalina Yachts?

    Slot seal strips for swing keel

    Hi Charley and every one. My boat is Mod 3 - year 2000. When the boat gets a bit of speed water gushes in from the centerboard opening. I'm assuming Catalina upgraded the gasket to fix this issue? Did it work well with you?

    Installing a ladder?

    Thanks Greg, I read this post in the beginning of the thread. My question was about how u installed the securing strap, this is not mentioned in your post. Also is there any specific reason the ladder has to be installed on the right side of the transom?
