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

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 know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

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.

He's still smarting over the Dufour thread, where they mentioned every boat of the last thirty years worth sailing, with the notable exception of......
