Catalina 27' Sailboats

Our current fleet consists of 6 Catalina 27′ sailboats.

Each of our Catalinas have been completely refitted with new wiring, cabinets and plumbing. The addition of holding tanks have made our boats “environmentally friendly”, which allows us access to U.S. waters including the San Juan Islands of Washington State. This addition meets the new Canadian regulations. Every boat is hauled out each winter, inspected, bottom refinished and hulls polished.

Rigging is constantly being upgraded.  All 6 of our Catalinas have been completely re-rigged. Each is equipped with 120% furling Genoas. All of our Catalinas are equipped with Yamaha 9.9 hp high thrust 4-stroke motors.  Our boats are fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, utensils, etc. ready to cruise.

Each is fully equipped with safety gear which surpasses the Canadian Coast Guard safety standards.

Our Honeybee

Our first Catalina, purchased 1993

The Honeybee, the first of several gold-hulled boats in the fleet, was purchased in June 1993 with a loan from 10 members. To finance the loan, members were charged a daily usage fee of $50.00. The loan was repaid in just over two years.

The hulls were repainted in 2009 to the clean white you see today.

Our second Catalina purchased 1995

The second 27 foot Catalina purchased by the Coop was named Mookie. This occurred in the fall of 1995 and was made possible through a loan from one member, Ron Bryce. Ron had been a valuable member of the Coop since 1994 and made many contributions to the Coop over the years. The repayment scheme for the Mookie was an annual boat levy on all members of $100.00 until the loan was retired. This became the method to acquire future boats and continued on as a practice to continue to upgrade our fleet.

Our third Catalina, purchased 1998

In the spring of 1998 with the assistance of George Doutre, we acquired yet another Catalina, the Jinjersnap. With a rapidly growing membership (aided by some television exposure from the Boat Show) more vessels were needed to satisfy the needs of members who were enjoying a particularly long and warm sailing season.

Our fourth Catalina, purchased 1999

In March of 1999 the 4th Catalina in the fleet arrived, My Way. It was purchased for $9500 including a furling foresail, the first in our club. My Way had a deep lazarette and a large fuel tank, ideal for cruising in Desolation Sound. The original layout was different from the other boats, with less sleeping area but more room for entertaining.

Our fifth Catalina, purchased 2002

None of this stuff below is accurate, probably because it was insanely difficult to update the old website.  We need to update this with actual information, not stuff copied over from Weekend Pirate
