Boom pin

This weekend I noticed on my Catalina 27 two pins attaching the mainsail boom to the mast and they were very rusty. Are these common parts or would they be specific sizes to my particular boat? Any recommnedations for online sources to purchase or would West Marine sell these?

Check CatalinaDirect's website. Virtually all parts are available from Catalina at reasonably competitive prices. You would most likely find the International Catalina 27 Association helpful, too. Both come up on Google.

Are we there yet?

I think that most of Catalina's hardware is made by Garhauer. You could try contacting Garhauer directly and possibly save yourself some jingle.
