  1. Only a true Vulgarian would think posting that shot was a good idea.....
  2. The actual threaded studs into the keel could be a real problem... it's pretty hard to tell from just a pic, but what is the material? I'm not familiar with Catalinas but if other owners have done the "sistering" method on similar boats, you may find the nuts are the least of your worries. I don't like to sound negative but I would make that keel bolt attachment one of my first priorities with that boat. Everything else like engines, sails etc. you can get around but not a keel.
  3. I think your keel bolts appear to be a major issue... are they all like that??
  4. Edboat, I stand corrected. I still love my fat old half-tonner with the pinched in transom though.......
  5. If these boats weren't IOR then what were they you twit?? At least you could be reasonably confident the keel would stay attached to these old boats, despite the rolling downwind. I wonder what nostalgia there will be for the current crop of motor/sailors masquerading as sail boats in thirty years time??? Can't imagine too many turned over to charter unless you happen to have very skilled diesel mechanic on board at all times.
