Re: Calling all catalina 38 owners!
I own a Catalina 36 and have found catalina36.org to be invaluable. The cost is only $25. I was not able to access catalina38 so I can't vouch for the quality of their information. In catalina 36 in addition to technical resources there are pages and pages of modifications people have made to their boats. Let me give you an example: I don't know what year your boat is but mine has a Universal M25 diesel. If yours is a Universal did you know it is really a Kubota tractor engine? Catalina36 had the cross reference information I needed to buy parts from Kubota rather than Universal. Injectors were $53 ea rather than $300ea. If Catalina38 is run like Catalina36 it is well worth just$25. Also try Catalina Direct for parts.
