Re: help me identify this boat

The size and shape of the companionway looks like a Catalina. Does it have an HIN#?

Re: help me identify this boat

CAB (Stroker) did not make sailboats. It sure looks like a Catalina who used CTY and CUE.
Either you have misread the HIN/MIC or its been tampered with which is more common than you'd think.

Can you post a photo ? I have some experience with tampered HIN's

Whats A HIN ?

the HIN # does not look to be tampered with. i thought i originally wrote the numbers down wrong but i went back and they were in fact correct. i cannot find a Catalina with comparable design. has inboard yanmar diesel and tiller steering.

That does not look like a Catalina HIN. All Catalina HIN's that I have seen were inscribed but for one which was molded (like the one in your photo) and turned out to be fake.

The HIN says the hull was built in December 1977
