Sometimes you hear a story, so far fetched, you Just GOTTA LAUGH..
Being we're in a Marine
Based Business, we get loads of stories from people..
But a few days ago I had a New Sailor come into the shop, looking to have some canvas work
done.. (wont say his name).. But in the conversation he merntioned he had bought a used Catalina
22 as his first sailboat and his boat
had the "Safety Rudder" on it.. I'm thinking its probably the swing up rudder
that many had, But in his conversation It came up a couple more times.. So I asked.. What "Safety Rudder" are you speaking of..
So he went on to tell me that the rudder
on his boat
was specially designed by Catalina
with a designed length to come out of the water
allowing the boat to "Round-Up" befor the boat would turn over..
And that rounding-up was a safety
feture built into the Catalina 22..
I just left it at that......
AND SOMETIMES YOU JUST GOTA LAUGH............
