we're not at the boat so that was what the husband found.  if i'm hull 99, that makes me a mk1 right?  and yes, that is the correct manual.  so should i put a vang on, even though i'm not racing her, or just replace the single swivel block at the boom?  the person sailing with us yesterday suggested the vang (just a rope one) to keep the boom from bouncing in a gybe.

reading this - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B-noW8PUQNCcNFRfR21WMzBWRUU/edit is pretty terrifying how bad my boat looks, in comparision to all the work this person did!  and I really need to do the traveler through bolts!

thanks

can you send the manual you're using?  we're looking at the catalina 34 mk2 manual, online.  we're not at the boat right now

our set up is like this http://www.apsltd.com/images/CATEGORY/medium/652.jpg - but with 3 blocks at the boom, not two.  why would you have this vs a vang?

I don't know if my 1986 came with a vang, or not, but it's not there now.  What I have, instead, is the main sheet coming from the cabin top to a block at the base of the mast (which is fine), into a block underneath the boom (which is the last of the equipment that was brittle white plastic and needs to be replaced, if we're replacing it) to a 3 block system (which doesn't match the manual which came with the boat) under the boom, then to the traveler.  It's a bizarre system.  I'd like to get a rope vang but I'm unclear, if I get that, can I get rid of the top block, under the mast and then how that would work with the 3 block system, since I've never seen anything like it before. 

thanks

btw, thanks for the advice about calling Guido.  he knew exactly what I needed for my traveler.

thanks Stu.  I was trying to figure out how to put screen on without looking completely ghetto!

how do we know what kind of coolent cover (on the engine) we can use?  was there a guide for the M25's somewhere?  my cover is green and rusty (and brittle looking)?

I'm letting these cracks dry out before I do anything and I'll look into getting This old boat. thanks

I have the same issue with a reseviour put on, last year.  it hangs in the head since my 1986 did not come with one.  it's leaking and i can't tell from where.  It's not a huge leak at all but it is going down, even with the engine not running.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/10826951@N04/14749268420/in/photostream/ -is a crack, starboard side, at the plexi and https://www.flickr.com/photos/10826951@N04/14935925145/in/photostream/ is the inside, from where the old vetus vent was.  the cabin top bulged out.  Do i just let it dry and replace the rotted wood with West system?  I'm unclear what I do, with the first picture  I've never repaired the plastic on the inside before. What do I use?

thanks in advance
