Welcome to the Catalina 22 Discussion Group List! This is not the
first such list or even the only such list. But after a couple
of years subscribed to some of the others, I found that all have shortcomings that
strived to overcome. "It's better to light a candle than to
curse the darkness."
We hope it soon becomes the best such list,
though it's not intended as competition. Itís an alternative and an additional option for
the C22 community. This is, I think, "a better mouse trap."
This list is intended for and dedicated to that Catalina 22 sailing community across the country and around the world. Itís a place to meet and discuss mutual interests in our
boats and exchange ideas concerning their restoration, maintenance, improvement
and seamanship. Here we freely discuss all aspects of owning and sailing our
boats, and continue our camaraderie.
It is especially intended to be as
I can make it. I respect your privacy
as much as my own. Therefore, all information provided when subscribing to this list
is kept entirely confidential, used only to
qualify a subscription applicant. Not only will it never be given to anyone else, it will
never be posted anywhere else, where it could be compromised.
All e-mail addresses provided for subscription are kept strictly within this closed list; they are not posted anywhere else (as
one C22 list does), where they
can be harvested by spammers or subject to virus attacks. The form application method
below eliminates most of that
problem. Approving and providing subscriptions individually to each qualifying applicant by
a human administrator further screens out others. (I've even
phoned a few of applicants before subscribing them
when I was in doubt, or when there was a problem with their e-mail
But you must fill out the application form in
its entirety -- every field with correct information that I can
check and verify -- or you will not be considered for a
Each otherís e-mail addresses are available
within the header of messages posted to this list; so approved and subscribed
members can contact each other privately off-list
(unlike another of the Catalina 22 forums).
If you decide to apply for a free subscription,
please read carefully the
List Instructions so you
don't waste both of our time with bounced messages to the list.
See the information about a
list archive or
digest format if you have
any questions about either.
With a list owned and administered by both
committed Catalina 22 owners and active list participants, any problems encountered with it
are dependably corrected quickly and efficiently Ė assuming
weíre not both out sailing at the same time!
There is no charge for a subscription. Like so much else
we do with our boats, itís a labor of
love. But any and all contributions to help
defray the cost of maintaining this service will of course be gratefully
With now over 270 member-subscribers from around
the world and always
growing, we hope to see you aboard soon!
