Re: Catalina Direct
Pretty crass to come in here just to slam a company.
My experience with Catalina Direct has been excellent, like everyone else's except for this one person's. I've also had stuff not align, but despite Catalina's high production numbers for sailboats, they're not kicking out Corollas here...they're sourcing different parts at different times and making stuff fit on the fly over a production run of 40 years, so I get it.
If I had one nit, it would be that their kits can be a little expensive compared to buying all the parts separately, but the fact that they've put the time in to make sure that everything works together correctly is valuable to me, and often worth the premium. I just need to remind myself that their business model is not the "extra value meal."
But their customer service and knowledge, especially on the 22, has been outstanding for me.
