C22 Winter Cover

Went to Home Depot to pickup some PVC schedule 40 pipes to replace the ones that were missing.

The mast was stripped and supported with a 2x4 that mounts in the gungeons.
The PVC pipes ($5 each) were tie wrapped to various places on the deck:

  • rear cleats
  • jib turning cars
  • jib cars
  • chainplates 

I removed the battery, vacuumed the bilge, removed all the exterior teak, as well as the entire pop top assembly.  In the winter, I will refinish all the teak, and re-paint the pop top.

Next I slid the old shrink wrap over the mast and frame:

Sealed the front and back with some extra shrink wrap and tape.

This is the fourth year that I am getting out of this shrink wrap!

The Catalina 22 logos on the coamings are a little hurtin:

May order some replacements in the off season from Catalina Direct ($40US + shipping).
Probably paint the topsides as the gelcoat is worn thin.

Want to make her all spiffied up and put here on the market in the spring.

UPDATE: wind storm came through last night:

We had gusts to 50+ knots.

Recycled shrinkwrap didn't budge!
