Looking for links and sites with parts/gear for Catalina 22. For example a google search turns up almost nothing for stern pulpit. Catalina direct does not even have one. They only show the 2 piece option which i have read is not that strong.
Have you tried calling Catalina? I was in their store this past Tuesday. Got a hell of a deal on some interior hardware. Their phone number is (727)544-6681 or (813)544-6681. They are in Largo FL off of Bryan Dairy road. Good luck
Have you tried emailing/contacting Catalina Yachts directly? The one time I did I was shocked to recieve a response back from Gerry Douglas, VP and designer...they were able to provide what I was looking for...
Others have commented on the responsiveness of Catalina Yachts with their customers, and I can attest to that...in these days when it seems there is little to no factory support...Catalina seems to be an anomaly in that regard.
If you're on the east coast there are a couple of liquidators on YachtWorld that are selling Sandy damaged boats and I'd bet there are a few Catalina 22's in the mix.
Another option, if Catalina no longer makes the stern pulpit give them a call and ask for a copy of the blueprint used to make the original. Chances are they'll be able to email it to you. Any fabricator should be able to make a stern pulpit from the prints.
I think it has been said already the Catalina-22 National Sailing Association Might be able to help you.
I feel for you because you might be able to buy a whole boat for the price of one or two parts.
I am looking for a used low price kick up rudder. keep me in mind .
Kind Regards , Lou
I have had good luck finding things at catalinadirect.com. I haven't looked for a Catalina 22, but I noticed that they had a stern pulpit for a Catalina 320 (even though I didn't need one). And I was surprised at least once when they contacted a manufacturer to find a part for my 320. Overall, I've been satisfied with everything they sold me.
