For the first generation
Catalina 22 built through hull #13142.
The pop top curtain provides protection from the
elements in any weather. Since the curtain covers the
entire pop top, rain cannot enter from the top. Fabric
extends down the companionway with a zipper up the
middle. Although possible, it is not necessary to insert
the crib boards for the curtain to keep the weather out.
It attaches to the doghouse using a series of snaps
installed in the deck just above the windows. This
series of snaps extends in a horizontal line around the
entire doghouse forward of the mast. A zipper extends
from the mast forward to the leading edge so the curtain
can surround the mast. The entire horizontal portion of
the doghouse is covered. Additional storage space is
created surrounding the mast for use at night to free up
berths for sleeping.
Fixed flexible plastic windows are installed port and
starboard. They brighten the interior and make it easy
to check how you're swinging at anchor.
Caution: Don't open the pop top while sailing in
anything but the lightest breeze. it is a huge hole in
the deck and an obvious safety hazard in a knock down.
