May have found a C-22 for the group

To all that were kind enough to reply to my posts :

I may have found the boat we both need and can afford. Its only about 4-5 hrs. from here in NC. and it comes with a duel axle trailer (work needs to be done on trailer before we can travel with it..$200+-) Its a 1985 C22 with roller furling jib, main, all new lines, sheets and halyards,canvas covers for main and tiller, swim ladder, and comes with a working 4hp Yamaha OB. From the pictures he sent, it looks clean, both in and out. no structual problems that he was aware of.

I will look for soft spots, leaks around front hatch etc. The boat is at a slip now, so I should be able to note water and trim leaks.

At $2800 ,What do you think boys ?

I have never surveyed a catalina 22 so I am not aware of any trouble spots.

At $2,800 it's hard to get in trouble.

I have a survey checklist that you can use when you inspect it. It won't tell you "how" to assess something but it is a nice checklist for what to look at.

Send me a PM with your email address if you want it.

Good luck!

Ref. the Cal-22 we hope to buy:

On the off chance that one of you may know... I will need to find 4 ea. ajustable bunk tops (they use a screw type ajustment fitted with a PT wood and carpet pad )to fit the hull shape. the 4 uprights w/o pads are now on the trailer. The marina mgr. indicated these "tops" fit into the approx. 2"ID X 3' long uprights and along with the keel stand hold and balance the boat on the trailer. He seems to think they can be purchased as a seperate piece, however has not had to buy any in a very long time.

I have pictures of the trailer showing the four upright tubes that these bunks fix into. If any one needs them. I could em you 2-3 shots. just let me know.

Again my thanks boys..

I haven't had the pleasure of needing to replace those before either.. Have you tried googling the manufacturer of the trailer by name to see if you can purchase these pad mounts from them? Name and model will be on title/registration for the trailer.

Next place to check is the Catalina Yachts HQ in southern california. they contract with companies to package up appropriately customized trailers for the trailer boats they sell. They might be able to direct you to the proper manufacturer for parts.

Last idea is just to call a few local trailer sales and repair companies in the area.

The $2800 deal may still be a good one, but, I suspect this expense will add another $500 or more to the cost.
