measurement needed betw. int. bulkheads for 1990 wing cradle
« on: November 05, 2005, 05:41:48 AM »

I have two conflicting designs for a cradle for our 1990 wing (#1102). One (from manual) indicates 12' betw. pads, another, (from the Marine Cradle Shop) indicates 13'. Since the pads should be right underneath the interior bulkheads, could someone with a comparable model who is near their boat (ours is 700 mi away!) measure the distance betw. the bulkheads? Thanks, Kerk

Kerk : I'd go with the Owners Manual measurement. 
BTW Catalina is still in business, so if you doubt your manual, give them a call and recheck it.  Catalina is still making shipping cradles.  I don't believe the MKI is that much different than the MKII!! (in the bulkhead placement).  Also I'm not too sure how you would accurately measure that distance internally? 
And if someone came back and said that distance is 14 ft or 11 ft, then what would you do??   :think

Kerk, I have 1990 also (#1058).  Not sure if you still need this info, but I measured bulkhead-to-bulkhead distance and it is 13'8" (this also corresponds to the "lift" indicators on the hull.)
