Jon : Sorry, I haven't been to the Chicago show.  As I said this is the best show to see the vendors(tents).  My comparasion is based on the Annapolis & Washington Shows.  Climate is nice as it's inside like Chicago.

Phyllis and I will be at the Catalina Owners Booth on Thursday and Friday.  The new C35 is scheduled to make its debut.  This is the best show for talking to the "vendors".  They have time and will actually talk to you and answer your questions - especially on the weekdays.  Catalina throws a nice owners party on Friday about 1700hrs. Stop by and say Hello.  ;)

Unless you drill on the far outside edges you won't be over the haylards/sheaves.  You'll be able to see the ends of the bolts if they go all the way thru. I used self taping machine screws - easier than drill& taping. Use some antiseize or grease on the threads to prevent corrosion and a dab of caulk on the heads to prevent backing out. Think about what else you mey want to do while you're up there; i.e. a TV antenna, lightening arrestor etc. If the other fasteners up there don't have it - put a dab of caulk on them.   ;)

I'd guess that the mast cap is 1/4-5/16" thick.  Why do you need the thickness?  You'll have to go to the top to drill and tap the screws.  The cap is not removible with the mast up.   ;)

Contact Bill Beck at or (703) 307 - 4255. He installed one in his 1991 C34.  Here's where I've seen the compressor installed in a MK I - in the V berth, in the compartment just fwd of the mast, under the Nav table, in the hanging locker by the Nav table, and after installation of a type I MSD in the port side locker where the waste tank used to be.
 Bill may favor his installation, but he can give you some ideas on the pros and cons of the other places. He can also answer your other questions better than most.

David Penz is correct. Anytime that I have a question I go back to Catalina and ask David Graas or Gerry Douglas.  David usually replys back the next day, Gerry when he gets a chance.
 I always call and talk to the Manufacturer - "the horses mouth". You need to be careful about answers from the internet, as you don't know which end of the horse is speaking!   Ron

Paul : You have three choices. 1. replace/rebuild it from from Seaward  2. Convert it to kerosene/diesel  3. Jerk it out and put in a propane unit.    ;)

Bill : If it's a Catalina Sail I'd call the factory and ask them if their sails were only meant to last ONE year. I had some new sails and had that area reinforced. ;)

Glenn : Stu is correct about Lewmar replacement screens for the side ports.  What he didn't say was that they're about $17 EACH !!  I have screens for the side ports,head,Vberth and over the dinnett. Let me know and I can tell you what I did to solve the screen problem. ;)
