Silly newbie question...
 
I've noticed a bunch of boats that I've looked at are "MK II" what exactly does that mean?

Usually it means that they are the second version of the boat - has been modified in some way from the original design

Thanks... Makes sense.

In some cases the changes are rather drastic, in others, the changes are relatively minor and cosmetic in nature. It pays to dig a bit deeper and find what the exact differences are.

You are probably looking at a Catalina boat. The MkII or MkIII designations are used when the boat undergoes a large design change. For example, my “MkII” boat has a walk thru transom whereas the original design did not. These boats still utilize the same hull mold and conform to the existing class rules for the boat.

it's actually a contest MkII. Not a Cat. those seem rather "slapped together." I haven't been able to find a lot of info about it.
