The way that a Catalina 25 was constructed would have absolutely no relationship to the way a Ranger 23 would have been built. The Rangers were a pretty high quality boat for thier day, and the 23 was designed by a world class designer.

The Catalina 25 of that same era was a value oriented boat that was pretty much put together as cheaply as it could be and still be reasonably sound and suited for its basic mission.

Detail by detail, I would expect to the Ranger to have been built to a higher standard of care.

Respectfully,
Jeff
