Re: Catalina model specification guide?
Boats of that age are rarely still 'as equipped' when original. A lot of gear will have been updated and added (one hopes).
I'd say that the best thing to do is peruse other similar listings and get an idea of what is average condition and equipment vs reasonable price.
Yachtworld.com is one source, there are many other 'sailboats for sale' sites (Sailingtexas is probably better for smaller boats)
