1999 Catalina 36 MKII
I spent about one year sorting out the best suited racer/cruiser specially suited for San Francisco Bay.
This particular model is fin keel, this means that you can head up into the wind as much as 30 degrees off wind.
Its keel-stepped mast and a full range of instruments makes it suitable for ocean coastal cruising.
There are 2 anchors. One is a 44 pound Bruce with 50 foot of chain and 200 foot of rode and the other that is stored in the chain locker is a Danforth with 30 foot of chain and 150 foot of rode.
The Maxwell 800 electric windlass with up and down foot buttons makes easy to lower and retrieve the anchor while a the bow. The windlass can be controlled from the cockpit using a wired remote switch box.
Sails - head sail is 8.5 oz Dacron 110% and main is the standard 4 full batten sail with 2 single-line reef points and is equipped with Dutchman reefing.
She is equipped with 4 cylinder 35 Horse power Westerbeke ( Universal) diesel engine with 25 gallons fuel tank. Its new fuel gaged indicates the correct number of gallons of fuel. Most other Catalina 36 sailboats are equipped with 25 HP diesel engine.
Its Matrix Horizon GX 2150 VHF is equipped with DSC emergency button and AIS receive. It reports all nearby vessels that transmit AIS signal. It is equipped with fog horn and a choice of fog signals.
The raw water pump is replaced with Oberdorfer reliable pump.
