THANK HEAVENS is all I can say.

I have been screaming about this for years. I have had discussions with Catalina about keeping their quality (or improving) versus cutting corners. Compare the joinery, the rigging, the standard equipment, the winches, etc... and you will find it is not apples:apples. I was almost certain that Catalina was going to follow the route of a couple of other builders and cheapen up their boats. ANd quite candidly, they still don't do things that I would like them to do, but they seem to be holding their quality.

My opinions.
