Catalina 22 Trailer Bunk Riser
Category: Sailboat trailer, bunk, adjustment
Problem: The trailer I had for the Catalina 22 was built specifically for it and basically came new with the boat. They have the tolerances on the trailer such that when the boat comes in, the keel doesn’t have much clearance. When I went to do some work on the keel, such as replacing the keel pivot pin, basically the keel was trapped in the boat.
Action: I increased the height of the boat by putting in spacer blocks where the bunk was attached, which gave me room to work and maneuver as I was doing repairs on the keel.
Result: It worked all right!
When idea was conceived: 2/13/2012
How much time it took to develop: 6 hours
How much money it took to develop: $20.00
Current status: In use on the trailer though I sold the boat and trailer.
