We had been thinking about a purchase of a Catalina 22 from a gentleman in Auburn, AL. Prior to the purchase we went out to Lake Martin to look it over a couple of times and take some photographs. Here is what she looks like in her slip today, 9-15-2006. It hadn’t been moved from the slip in some time and needed some TLC but we knew it would clean up nice, after all, it was still floating, and from all we gather, it hadn’t moved in about 4-5 years at the time of our purchase.
It is a 1979 Catalina 22 [hull number to follow], purchase price was $1,000, which included the trailer. The plan is to haul her out and bring her home around the 12th of November 2006 and begin work on her restoration. There is a lot of work to be done but it will be fun to work on her. See next post for full photo shoot.
