Catalina 30

This project details the search for, restoration and repair of our 1977 Catalina 30.  We had looked around quite a bit before finding her.  Even a trip to North Carolina was part of our search.  (Who doesn’t love coming up with an excuse for a road trip?)

My Boating History

My first memories of boating was as child my father bought a canoe. We'd paddle around lakes and creeks. When I was around 6 or 7 my dad bought a 1968 28' Owens cabin cruiser. I remember lots of work necessary to maintain the wooden boat. We spent most summer weekends for several years on the boat, first in the Delaware River, then Indian River near Georgetown, DE, and finally at the Northeast River and Chesapeake Bay. Around 1977 dad moved on to building a house and the boat got left to the wayside. During my teens, twenties, and thirties I saw only sporadic boating interludes.
