I just added 15 photos of recent work on "Chariots of Fire". They show keel removal, correct installation of upgraded hangers and keel centering shims (not visible), new bottom paint and the hull buffed and waxed. The classic Catalina keel klunk is now gone. I hated that unnerving sound.

There is a photo of an incomplete repair to the previously damaged forward sette as purchased in January of 2012. That will be my next task although I am not entirely sure how to proceed. Comments and suggestions from this august forum are welcome.

Thomas, spent some time with the Shutterfly folks. It should be good to go now.

Thanks,

Nice, very nice. I really like your Bimini/Dodger setup. Did you do it or PO?

Thanks. The dodger was done by a PO. The zippers have been replaced and the stitching redone. Living as we do in the Pacific Northwest the dodger is great. It allows standing room in all but the worst weather pier side or underway. Aesthetically I wish it had been a color tha better matched the boat's color scheme but it sure is handy.

Now if it just had roller furling...

Thanks again,

Mike
