    Replacing Pulpit

    By the way, I was in a club race, on starboard, on the lay line to the windward mark. Boat 2 , 39 ft long, approaches on port. I call starboard and they tack below me. They are below the lay line and have no chance of making the mark. They continually pinch up, never calling for room. I pinch up...

    Replacing Pulpit

    Stu, You have the benefit of a full marina with a yard, staffed by folks who work on boats. We don’t have that here. In my marina there is a guy (1), independent contractor, that works on boats when he is in the mood. He is good, but he isn’t going to go out and be a general contractor for...

    Found a local, two-man shop that can make a custom pulpit. Six weeks. Hope it all works out

    Replacing Pulpit

    I took tracing paper to the boat and mapped out pulpit footprint on the deck in full scale, including mounting holes. This will go to the pulpit manufacturer What I don’t know how to do is measure the deck angle, side to side and fire and aft so the foot plates can be appropriately tilted

    Replacing Pulpit

    Ok, Catalina in Clearwater, as does Catalina Direct, currently get all their rails from Railmakers in CA. The late production C-310 boats from Clearwater obtained rails from two and possibly three different sources in FL. However, it appears those sources no longer exist. The later C-310 pulpits...

    Replacing Pulpit

    Anyone know the name of the company in Florida (or in proximity) that made bow pulpits and railings for the 310 when production was moved to Clearwater?

    Replacing Pulpit

    Crowfoot wrench cannot go around the corner far enough on top of the headliner. Thanks very much for the rail URLs. I’m in discussions with Catalina (they will job it out). Issue is getting the dimensions correct. I’m amazed at the differences in “production” boats.

    Replacing Pulpit

    Well, it appears none of the pulpit bolt, from either the forward foot pads or the aft foot pads have backing bolts. The post referenced above says the bolts will be forward of the bulkhead in the forward bunk and have nuts on the bolts in the rear foot pads. Referring to the picture. On my boat...

    Fuel delivery issue

    On my -310, the fuel will gravity feed as long as the tank is half full or more. The Racor, located under the rear bunk, is the lowest part of the fuel line. From the Racor to the electric fuel pump located on the starboard rear of the M-25 XPB, there is a rise in the line, but still below the...

    Replacing Pulpit

    No, a long socket will only work if the headliner is cut where the scars will be visible afterward. It will take an open end wrench wedged between the top of the headliner and the bottom of the deck

    Replacing Pulpit

    Attached is the drawing of the bow pulpit as provided by Catalina. I note here the Clearwater facility parts department one (1) employee who is a bit overwhelmed. He is helpful, but could use assistance! The drawing, and what is on my boat differ. The second attachment has dimensions as...

    Replacing Pulpit

    Has anyone replaced the pulpit on a C-310? - Do the bolts have nuts on the back like the stantions do? - If so, how do you access the nuts? There is no access via the anchor rode locker, and the fasteners are all forward of the bulkhead in the forward berth If you’ve done this I would...
