    Boom height

    Anyone know what the boom height should be? I just rigged it for the first time and the metal/alum stop is loose. I'm not sure if it's an exact height or just where the slack is out of the main sail.

    Forward Hiking Straps

    Does anyone have any good ideas on replacing the line that holds up the forward hiking straps? I can't seem to get enough of myself into the hatch and then around the bulk head to tie a new line. Maybe the rubber grommet pops out, but I thought I ask before I start prying it out.:confused:

    Center board. AZRICk's correct. Call them and ship it back - It's a common error. Just remember, anything you purchase from Catalina let them know you have a MOD 1. Good luck, clo

    Tipping Over and Taking In Water

    Taking on water I have Mod I and I've had it go turtle twice. The first time it turtled it did take on a lot water and would hardly sail once we had it right side up. I too opened it up and was surprised on the amount of water my boat had. Then I found out that Mod 1's are supposed to have...

    cracks at mast bracket

    Mast Bracket That makes sense about break away. When mine went it pulled out two of the four screws and the other two loosened up but held. I went to reinforcing the deck below and using bolts to hold the mast bracket. I guess if it breaks this time it might take part of the deck with it. clo

    cracks at mast bracket
