About to purchase a 1987 Catalina 22 and finding other sources for these products and other items much less than the Catalina Direct Store.
Are there some other sources available besides Catalina Direct?

Items:
Bimini, Head Hank On Sail Bag, Main Sail Wrap, Companion Way Cover for 1987 Catalina 22

Learn something every day. Appreciate the heads up. Was under the impression that Catalina Direct was the best source.
As you can imagine, with an early model purchase 1987 Cat 22, I'll have now found that "Black Hole" to drop some cash in.
Appreciate the timely response

We make a lot of nice canvas!
I'm already in the group waiting for when COVID's supply-chain mess clears up enough you can take more canvas orders (a C-22 companionway cover, in my case). Maybe you can post a general announcement when your suppliers are catching up.

Sailors tailor is another great source. If your handy with a sewing machine you can make your own covers easily enough as well. As for the Bimini ebay along with many other resources seem to offer decent prices as well.

We are cranking out stock items, patterned items, it is custom items like the companionway cover which we don't have a pattern for that are on hold for now. Thanks.

Dave Groshong has a Catalina and suggest working with him. Everyone has given you good advice. Surprised about Catalina Direct but have been out of the business since 2012
