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.
you also could have found all of that info here for free...
