The old owner of our boat put a 2 blade 15x9 propeller on our boat, and it is drastically underpowered.
If anyone has a 15x9 Sailer Prop (3-Blade) that they want to sell, let us know!  They aren't horribly priced, but would like to save some $$ if possible.

Feel free to e-mail at, or call/text  231-225-5060.  Anything reasonable would be considered.

When we bought our boat, it came with a CNG RV-type stove (burners only) that does not gimbal.  Due to such a pain in get CNG, my wife and I have decided to convert to propane.  We want to put a propane stove/oven that gimbal in the boat, as well as the proper locker/ventilation.

If anyone has functioning marine stove/oven combo for a C34, and/or a propane locker, we are looking to buy, and would rather not deal with the pricetag of new!

Feel free to e-mail at, or call/text  231-225-5060.  I dont' check the forums that often (don't gasp Stu!) .

Anything reasonable would be considered.

Lake Michigan / Lake Michigan C 34's

It'd be nice to know who else is out there with a C 34 in Lake Michigan - especially the Muskegon/Whitehall area.  From our slip, including our boat, there are 5 C34's all visible from the cockpit.  It's pretty cool.  Would like to get to know some other C34 owners, etc.  It might be fund to do a mini-rendevouz, if there are enough boats and interest!

Main Message Board / Head Dimensions
« on: August 30, 2016, 12:11:22 PM »
Just curious if anyone on the forum has a drawing showing the floor of the head, or a company that has the dimensions already for teak grate. 

We are looking to put a teak grate in our 1989 34, and every company is giving me run-around.  They want CAD-type drawings for their grate, not a cut-out template.

Anyone have this drawing, or a suggested dealer that would take my cut-out template?  Or maybe someone who already has the pattern done?


Main Message Board / Nicro Dorade (1989) Parts
« on: June 07, 2016, 11:19:13 AM »
Hello everyone.  This is my first post to the forum.   My wife & I purchased a 1989 (Sail #880) Catalina 34 last fall.  This spring/summer, we are working on getting some of the "kinks" out of the boat.  We have two Nicro dorade vents, and I read the articles/wiki/mainsheet articles about replacing the vents with new vents and dorade boxes. 

Looking at our vents, the only thing that we are having issues with is the internal mechanism.  The screw and "mushroom cap" that keeps the water out are missing - which means that currently, we can see daylight through our dorades - not good!

I was wondering if anyone that replaced their Nicro dorades with something new had the old parts laying around?  I'm interested in purchasing them - Catalina, CatalinaDirect, nor anyone else has replacement parts any longer.

Thank you!
