Any Douglas & McLeod 22 Owners Out There?
Catalinas are everywhere. There are benefits to this. There are boat owner groups online and probably near enough to attend their regattas and other social events. Joining a owners’ group has other benefits. Can’t find a part? Ask the tribe; someone knows where to find it.
I own a Douglas & McLeod 22. This team did produce the Thistle and Highlander and went on to produce Tartans. Gordon Douglas went on to design the Flying Scott. All popular boats. I don’t know how many D&M 22s are out there, but if you own one, I’d like to hear from you. I would value to the opportunity to swap ideas, advice, concerns and to chat with a fellow owner of a D&M 22.
