Miss October, 2009
Manager: Moby Richard
s/v (soon to be renamed)
1982 – Catalina 30, Sail #2824
Casco Bay, Portland Maine
She was found abandoned, dirty, out of shape and just a plain mess. It was pity that drove her manager to take her in and nurse her back to life. She was full of toxic waste and wore the trappings of a good girl gone bad. The only way to treat something this severe was to strip her bare and take a power washer to her. It was a hard thing to do but in the end she was very thankful. After many weeks of detox, the rebuilding was ready to start. With new clothes and accessories she was stunning! A real beauty! She is now ready to go back to work and live a productive life.
Clean gas, new plugs, loves to have her grease cup turned, Marvel Mystery Oil, a tender touch.
Ethanol, being cranked too long, not being warmed up properly, water intake not opened, being neglected.
Favorite thing to do:
Being taken out two or three times a week. Some place nice but not too expensive.
New thermostat, Moyer electronic ignition, Indigo EGR kit, new fuel pump, new coil, all new wiring, new water jacket
