Re: C-36 Window Shades
I think I may be able to help you out.
I had a 1996 C36 MkII, Catharsis, that I sold in 2014. When I first bought the boat in 2004, I ordered new pleated window shades directly from Catalina to replace the mildewy ones that came with the boat . Sadly, I never got around to installing them, as sailing always seemed to take priority over another project.
I was going to give the shades to the new owner of the boat, but he was such a dink at the 11th hour of negotiations that I decided to hang on to them, as well as to a number of other freebies I was going to include. Let that be a lesson for those who grind too hard for a boat priced fairly. (And yes I hope the new owner is reading this.)
The shades are new, untouched, and still in the shipping tube from Catalina. They have been sitting in the corner of my office since the day I got them. I'll have to check my records as to what I paid, but I certainly have every incentive to be fair.
Where are you located? I'm in Boston. I could send you pictures if you wish.
