Distinctive thing about this boat Instruments on pedestal guard, forced air heat 
Need How to get boat back into better working order. 
Comments I've got the Seaward engine harness upgrade, looks like it is somthing for this winter. The boat has several electrical upgrades one of which bypassed the ammeter at the engine panel, plus there are a number of items wired directly to the DC buss without benefit of fused switches. All and all the boat is in good shape. Looking forward to cruising the San Juans (only 12 mi away.) Thanks for the page and the chance to compare notes with other owners. -- Andy  PS, I was able to tour the Catalina factory in July, very interesting and a great source of info.
