Built in 1978, My Catalina 22 was showing her 36-Years when I purchased her. I originally planned to make a few DYI upgrades, replace old equipment, give the boat a fresh coat of paint and then have her back on the water.
A week later my DYI ambitions crumbled in the face of reality – How can I sand back the hull in a public storage yard? So, I got a quote from Ruben at Seamark Marine to professionally paint and get my Catalina 22 sailing again.
