Just saw this site!
Restoring my recently deceased (2008) father's 1987 Catalina 36 tall rig. She is coming together nicely, though I must admit it has been a ton of sweat and even more dollars ('B.O.A.T' = Break out another thousand!).
Anyway, have sailed her a few times. Glorious cruiser and getting better with every once of attention to detail we lavish on her.
