Found this first year production boat abandoned at a local boat yard and victim of  neglect. Solid and complete boat in very poor cosmetic/material condition.  Engine and interior damaged by fresh water due to hatches being opened for several years.  Purchased boat in July 2008 and currently undergoing bottom paint removal/sealing/ blister repair/ petit trinidad paint, and complete refit to include engine/exhaust, electrical/batt/charging, standing and running rigging, plumbing, lifelines/stanchions, thru hulls and valves, zincs and shaft packing.  Cosmetics to include fill/fair/awlgrip hull and topside,  rub rail replacement, exterior, interior bright work.  Upgrades to include Hood 707sl furler,   Harken lazy jacks, Sta-Set halyards, Harken shorthand clutches,  Shakespeare mast head antenna, halogen interior lighting, Raytheon nav/comm upgrade, depth sounder , deck, steaming and anchor light, bimini and canvas covers.

#0101, Orca Loca (formerly Agua), Frank and Cathleen DuBois, Deale, MD, no web, 1975, Mark I, SR,Fin, Hank on jib, Yanmar 11HP Diesel, Standard Prop
I found Orca in 1999, semi abandoned in the water in Solomon's, MD.  She had not been sailed  or hauled in quite a few years and it showed (her MD registration was dated 1991). She was berthed next to a stand of trees which filled the cockpit with leaves every fall, blocked the scuppers and flooded the cabin.  There are water stains about 10 inches up the interior paneling. The interior was a mess and had to be pressure washed thanks to the lack of ventilation over numerous summers. I've since done major blister work on the bottom including epoxy barrier coat, redone the rigging, new injector and head job on the Diesel (which started right up) rebuilt the pedestal and am now working on the interior (including plumbing) and running rigging.  Lots more to go and I'm not sure that the effort to pleasure ratio makes sense but I enjoy the project. 

#0103, Anicca, Richard Kerby, Port Orchard Washington, rjkerby@clear.net, 1975, Mark1, Standard Rig, Fin keel, 135% furling Genoa and std. main, Atomic 4, std. two blade prop. I’ve replaced the bilge compression block and repaired the keel bolts and bilge. Repaired the deck at the mast, replaced the chain plates and standing rigging and rebuilt the Spruce spreaders. Re-wired the Main DC system, Changed the pressure water system over to PEX plumbing and added a hot water heater. I’ve added a Chart plotter/Depth finder/ GPS, Radar, apparent wind indicator and auto helm. Looking forward to sailing the Puget Sound and Pacific North West.

We are the second owners of FatCat.  We bought her in 1991 to move up from a 25' trailer sailor.  We wanted a bigger, stiffer more comfortable boat for more than weekend trips.  Going from 8' of beam to almost 11' she seemed like a real fat Catalina, thus the name. We have had her as far north as the north end of Vancouver Island, BC and hope to make it to Glacier Bay some year, but not until we have propane, a better heater and I find all the window leaks according to the admiral.  Would also like to truck her to Florida, the Great Lakes and the east coast some time in the future.

Purchased Makama Wa 3 years ago when our family of 5 children outgrew our 19 foot pocket cruiser.  We've since enjoyed sailing her from Salem MA to the Isles of Shoals in New Hampshire and look forward to longer cruises to Boston, Cape Cod and the Maine Coast. I particularly like her big boat feel and stability.  She's pretty maneuverable and fast too. (I never passed anybody sailing our little boat "Precious Moments"). 
Incidentally, "Makama Wa" is the closest Hawaiian translation I could find to "Precious Moments".

We just purchased "Clew" this summer and are still on a sharp learning curve (our first boat). We've found the boat to be very easy to sail and also very forgiving. The Tech Talk manual has been a valuable resource for information on upgrades, modifications and systems maintenance and we advise all owners to seriously consider purchasing one (it'll save you BIG bucks). Clew had been wisely upgraded by the previous owners and extremely well maintained over the past 25 years.

The original owners kept the boat in great condition, but we are planning some major upgrades.  We enjoy learning about sailing. We have more fun every trip.

Wonderful boat in fabulous condition.  The A-4 purrs like a kitten and the sails look like new.  The teak interior has aged well and is kept oiled, not varnished.  With the exception of a Harken roller-furling system, very little has been modified on the boat.  A real joy to sail!

We are the second owners, having purchased the boat in 1995 from the original owner, Joe Mitchell.  Mr. Mitchell was very active with the King Harbor Yacht Club (KHYC), and he had sold his boat to us due to his wife's declining health.  We learned on a sail to Catalina last year, that both of the Mitchells have passed away.  The Mitchell's were proud of their Irish heritage, and the unique color scheme and decoration of our vessel, Ruille Buille remains in their original vision.  All canvas colors are in green, and the Genoa has green and orange panels, reminiscent of the Irish national flag.  Our sailboat is in very good shape for one that has been in constant use for 25 years.  Most of the gear is original, except the engine.  Mr. Mitchell was very diligent on record keeping... he passed along receipts for EVERYTHING he ever spent on the boat... including his original purchase bill!  The name Ruillie Buille, as was told to us by Mr. Mitchell, is Irish Gaelic for "confusion"... a very apt description we have been told... for those boat guests who had participated in their many parties onboard.  This boat has a lot of love and history.

Placed 2 house batteries below nav table and created shutter panel to cover opening. Moved engine gauges to port/stern of cockpit for better access with new panel and gauges. Replaced old panel hole with winch handle combing. Installed external Blue Seas switch panel to operate exterior lights. Installed 587ci Humminbird Plotter/Depth Finder. Still lots to do!!!

After months of looking for an older boat for me and the kids, I finally settled on this one.  I closed the deal on 11/22/02 and sailed that afternoon from Kemah, Texas.  We enjoyed a windless motor through Galveston bay.  The wind picked up upon exiting the Galveston Bay, and we had an exhilarating (15-20 kt. winds and 4-6 foot seas and a close reach all the way!) nighttime passage from Galveston to Port Arthur TX, then a nice leisurely motor from Port Arthur to Lake Charles via the Intercostals Waterway and the Calcasieu ship channel.
I bought an older boat knowing that it entails a lot of little things to bring it up to good condition, but this one started out in sailing condition and I don't mind house-keeping.  I do find the boat is comfortable, although a bit squirrelly while motoring.  Under sail, I found that a decent trim and you can lock the rudder down and it will hunt plus or minus ten degrees all night by itself.  The rig (upgraded by previous owners for racing) is easy to use for relative novices such as myself.  I've sailed dinghies for years.  This is my first "big" boat.  It's hoot!

#0873, Paradise, Dennis Jackson, Coronado CA, djackson@san.rr.com, 1978, Mark 1, SR, Fin, Main-Jib-150% Genoa, Atomic 4, 2 Blade. I have the good fortune to be the original purchaser/owner of this boat. Except for a few pieces of exterior teak wood, she is all original except for the original North sails which were replaced in 2006 (with Ullman Sails ), the installation of a Shaffer 1100 headsail furler (life does get easier with it) and installation of a Flexofold 2 blade folding prop. The engine has accrued 850+ hours  without any failures (and less than stellar maintenance plus a few owner induced salt water inductions). Custom installations include an Allen Pedestal Steerer (not cables in the system to break or jump off quadrants). The interior is all teak; I removed the oiled finish in the late 80's  and applied satin finish Flecto Varathane - it still has a  beautiful, soft & warm look that has only required occasional dusting. The only down-sides to her is that the gel coat is a bit dull (and now thin due to the required rub-outs/polishing).  In November 2008, I had the bottom reworked to eliminate the formation of blisters (speed bumps) by having the bottom (from the boot stripe down) sanded away gel coat and all down to the laminate and rebuilt with a super hard and smooth barrier coating (Ceram-Kote 99M) applied. I did not have anti-fouling applied-my bit for the ‘green’ world- so no copper or other potentially nasty stuff will pollute the waters; the down side is that my favorite diver now has an assured source of income for the next 10 years-the bottom needs cleaning every 2 – 3 weeks. The combination of a smooth bottom and folding prop has increased boat speed on all points of sail by at least 0.5 kts.  I look forward to another 25 years with her but she will need new keel bolts to get that far (and I'll probably need a few parts repaired/replaced too). Racing Update: We took 1st place in the Cruising Division of the 2010 IC30 National Regatta in San Diego with 4 firsts and a second place finish (a 309 took first place in one race and second place in the other four races). We also captured 1st place in the 2010 Silver Gate YC Family Fleet races and 1st place in the 2010 San Diego Catalina Association fleet races. In some of the races, she was able to outrun C27’s, C30’s, C309’s, C34’s, C36’s, and C42’s; in the other races, the handicap pushed us out in front. All races, except the Nationals, were raced single handed. Just gotta love this boat!!!

We found her in May, 2001, using the net. She is our first-owned boat, and her previous owner(s) took great care of her.
