"This Old Keel". . . The story about when I went to inspect the keel hinge that ended with many weeks of tricky drill work.


"Re-Furbishing the Keel" . . . Modifications to the keel to improve sailing performance and lower annual maintenance.

Technical Information Sources

I found two very good sources of information for the Catalina 22 Swing Keel:

  1. Catalina National Association Technical Journal (available for a small fee from the National Catalina Association)
  2. Catalina Direct Technical Journal (available for yet another small fee from Catalina Direct).
