Side-splitter

True, having your boat open like a can of cat food would fit my description of a very bad day, but.......

.....that's not the problem in most cases. It is more likely that you will get little streams of water seeping in if you run with the rub rail in the water. It would take days to sink a boat this way, maybe weeks, but it would definitely make for a musty boat and a soggy mess at times.

Jeez, now I've gotta pull my rub rail apart? OK, I'll check.

John

Re: Tell Me About Your Catalina 27

thanks michele my catalina has been great. ive done several improvements to it over that last few years although most of them have been cosmetic. i was lucky when i found this boat the previous owner had just put in a brand new yanmar 1gm10 diesel. bang for the buck i dont think you can get any better than a C27

well i'm crossing my fingers and saying a prayer. this boat is coming from the estate of an old lady in her 80s who had a stroke, but feels an emotional tie to it, so she pays slip fees every month while the boat is deteriorating. hopefully she'll let it go and i can make it pretty again!

Re: Tell Me About Your Catalina 27

well seeing how the C27 is a simplistic vessel wouldnt take much more than elbow grease to make her pretty again.

We've had 2/2 with lower starboard bulkhead wet discovered during holding tank install. Between head and dinette. First wasn't terrible. Second was pretty bad.

Hit the center of that bulkhead, on the fiberglass area, near the hose from toilet with your fist. If it sloshes like a jug of water...
