    Standing Rigging

    Here's a swage tool for $30.00 that will fit 3/32 - http://www.amazon.com/003-Swaging-Tool-16-32/dp/B004Z21C2E/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1369725176&sr=8-1-fkmr1&keywords=swage+tool+Nicopress+fittings Let me know if you can find the wire closer to the .42, I'd be willing to rent the swaging...

    Centerboard lift assembly

    Good point... I know I have some old tow straps laying around somewhere in the garage.

    Centerboard lift assembly

    That's great. I ordered a new shock chord from CD and will be adding the line soon. I noticed you don't have the hiking straps installed - my boat doesn't have them either. Do I really need them if I'm not going to be racing??

    Centerboard lift assembly

    Good afternoon guys, I purchased my mod II C14 a couple of weeks ago and I've replaced all the running rigging except for the worn out bungee cord that controls the centerboard and the line (totally missing) which runs the blocks - having these little blocks and cam cleats on both sides of the...

    this seems like a pretty good deal...

    **UPDATE** Over the past couple of months I've accepted a job with my company on night shift, nearly broken my back acting way younger than my age and spent a several days trying to track down the owner of the boat who seems to have walked away from his property. However, perseverance paid off...

    Greg, that's great to hear because I too will probably be solo-sailing most of the time and I really like the idea of having a r/f jib.

    A view from inside - Cuddy removed!

    Too cool!! Makes me wonder why Catalina didn't do more with this space from the beginning... This may be a stupid question, but were the empty water/milk cartons from Catalina or were those your own added buoyancy feature? -Rob

    Understood. Thanks for explaining. I pray that never happens to me. -Rob

    Makes sense. Question George - How hard or different is it to rig a roller furling jib as opposed to the hank on type? I've never had a r/f jib and I have to trailer the long block and a half to our lake (not far, but trailer none-the-less). Should I look to trade the r/f system or can I make...

    Wow Kent, you got great a deal! Were your original shrouds covered in plastic? These are (covered in plastic, that is). Do you think just checking for obvious signs of discoloration or other visual clues are enough to determine their reliability? A new set of shrouds could be $85 very well...

    Excellent advice! I'll definitely be checking that out. Thank very much! -Rob

    Right - very good point about the trailer - I need to keep that in mind. Yes, the rudder and tiller are there, but I didn't look very close at them. I pretty much just identified that they were there. I'm going to go by this weekend and ask him to take another look. I've looked at the...
