Anyone can join this Association for a mere $22 per year ($28.00 outside US;US funds). And the benefits are plenty.

Did you know you get 1/2 off annual membership dues to BoatUS.
Saltwater or freshwater, you pay $15 instead of the usual $30.
Your membership to BoatUS includes $50 On-Water Towing AND $50 On-Road Towing!
BoatUS is the only organization that helps boaters by additionally offers:
Low cost marine insurance and low rate boat financing
600 TowBoatUS and Vessel Assists Towboats in 300 ports
Member Rewards for shopping at West Marine and 4%back
Discounts at marinas on fuel, overnight slips and repairs
Free On-line boating safety course
24/7 On-the-Water and On-the-Road towing dispatch
and much, much more.
Additionally, if you buy Marine Insurance thru BoatUS, our Catalina 25 Association will receive $4 for every application we generate. Shortly we will have a link on our site for you to click on to purchase insurance.
This should be enough to entice you to join Catalina 25, C250 and Capri25 International Association in our First Annual Membership Drive. We the Officers, Staff and current membership understand you know the value of what this Association offers. Over the next several months, we will describe additional benefits. You will get a chance to hear from members as well.
We want to CONTINUE to be the BEST online boating association EVER. That can only happen by building on our membership. The experiences, information and knowledge we share with one another is invaluable. We need your help to continue to make this work for all of us.
We, the Officers, hope you take advantage of what we have to offer by becoming a Member. On the top right of any page, there is a link to "Join". Payment can be made by PayPal or check(US and Canada only).

To be quite honest, I haven't signed up or paid membership for any forum/association. There are numerous forums that I frequently visit as now days there is a forum for any hobby you can think off. So usually I just lurk around. But... based on wealth and quality of information I decided to officially join this association - in fact just few days ago :-) as I hope to see this association grow.

Likewise...I joined tonight. I have found that other forums have information to offer but they are more dedicated to the 30 ft(mainly 40+ cruisers). This forum is dedicated to what we enjoy. I have gained tremendous knowledge from this site, much more than $22 worth. Take a few minutes and signup, help this group grow and prosper.

Many may consider the $22 a lot considering there are many forums you can get onto for no cost at all...and actually can do same as a guest on this Forum. However, as mentioned above, you do have many benefits besides the wealth of knowledge and shared Catalina experiences. I find that the Boat US discount for the membership card that gets you the West Marine rebate discount is a big plus as well as the quarterly catalina magazine. These two benefits are alone are worth the $22.

It takes money and effort to put forth a website/association such as this....with a discussion forum, tech section, resources, negotiated discounts, etc.....and also the efforts of volunteers to lead it, upgrade it, take care of it, fix it when it breaks, chase off trolls and bots......

Our officers are the volunteers and our dues are the money. Please consider the $22 our share of the effort....

AND.... consider purchasing an [url="http://www.catalina-capri-25s.org/shipstore/burgee.asp"]Association Burgee[/url]! Fly it proudly......

If I get my 30+ yo fiberglass looking spiffy for spring, I'll be decking it out with a burgee!

No question things here are improving, and getting better daily!

Please double-check this. I think your wording may be misleading. I think that BoatUS wil pay up to $50 toward towing costs, not tow your boat for $50. There's a huge difference between getting towed for $50 and getting $50 off a towing bill!

If they'll tow my boat for $50 please let me know, because I'll drop the $125 unlimited towing plan.

Rick, First let me apologize for taking so long to get back to your issue. Yes, you are correct re the $50. It is toward towing your boat. I did a cut and paste from their website in the hopes that there would be no misunderstanding. Guess I missed the mark.

Dave, I think Paul was trying to say, as an Honorary Member, you do qualify to purchase and fly a burgee from this Association. I believe I have only 1 left with your name on it. I am still awaiting your order.

I've been a member for a little while now - worth every dime. I see how hard the officers and Paul (Britinusa) works and how much they care about our association. That's what makes this association different - why it's more like great hangout. And finally, it's responsible for helping me find Passage (many of you know the story).
And oh by the way • check is def in the mail…

I just want to thank those(you know who you are) renewing members who have taken the time to add their info in the Members Area. This saves the Officers(me) from doing it manually. So please when you renew, add yourself. Many Thanks,
Steve

I am finding a lot of renewing members are not adding themselves to the Member System. I am wondering if you are aware of it or something else. Please let us, the officers, know. Thanks,
Steve

Treasurer: I just informed delliottg that I joined as I promised I would but, also informed him that my membership shows it expired the same day (today) I joined! See if you can correct my renew date to 12/07/2014 instead of 2013 for me. Thanks, Chief

Returning member. I've had my boat out of the water for a few years. Actually it's still out of the water, but I intend to float her next season (2015). I used Pay Pal and I have access to the member's area, but I'm still showing up as guest.

Since my membership does not expire until 6-30-2015, why do I continue to get EM and snail mail to pay my dues before my membership expires and I loose my Mainsheet subscription? I wander how many other members the association pays for to have these extra mailings?

Hello all,

I am a new association member - didn't see an introduction sticky so maybe it belongs here? Anyway, I'm Jim and I live in Newport RI.

I can't figure out how to post pictures on the forum, yet but as soon as I do, I'll put up some of my boat: 1981 Catalina 25 Fin Keel, Tall Rig - "Believer". I'm not new to sailing, but she's the first boat I've owned. I bought her in pretty sad shape and spent the last year refitting... and sailing... and fixing... I have put a lot of work and she still needs more.

I've found Don Casey's book to be a really valuable (but general) resource. I'm looking forward to reading some of the great advice in this forum, and maybe offering some of my own.

Jim

Jim,

To post a picture, in the new or reply screen to postings, run your cursor over the icons in the Format Row (the Format row shows up in the new posting or reply posting screen, it is the list of icons in the 3rd row from the top of those screens)...toward the end of the icons is one that states "Insert Image" when you place your cursor over it. Click on that icon. That will place something similar to the following in your message part of your posting: "(image)...(/image)" except that it will show brackets in place of the parenthesis that I listed and it will list img instead of image.

Then you copy the url of your picture...it has to be a picture that is on the web. What you do is right click on the picture and select properties, then copy that url, for example,..."http://www........jpg" or something similar and then paste that url (but do not use the quotation marks in my example) in between the brackets of "(image)...(/image)", that is, you paste the picture's url in place of where I listed the 3 dots. Actually, there will not be 3 dots but just a space and what you do is paste the url into the space between the brackets. I showed the 3 dots to just make it clear where you need to paste the url.

Then you can click on preview to see if your picture does indeed show up in your posting.

FYI, I just tried to renew my membership online, but was unsuccessful, so I am having my bank mail a check to the Fayetteville address. It will not be accompanied by an application form, but my personal info hasn't changed. My bank's check will arrive in 7-10 days.

The membership registration software wants me to log in, but it won't accept the password that I use for the forum. Thus, I can't get past the login window to a Paypal window. I don't know if it's a flaw in the software or my ineptness.
