Catalina 30 MK II Noank
Washington State or British Columbia.
Has to be MK III.
The MKIII is a great boat. A well kept secret is the MKII.5. I found mine when I was looking for a MKIII. The MKII.5, has the hardware of the MKIII and the walkthrough transom. The difference is that they put the walk-thru in the hull of the MKII. Mine was the only one on the east coast when I found her. But, if one is on the market in your area, it might be worth a look for you. If the boat was made before the middle of 1993, or does not have stainless grab rails, it is not a MKII.5. Good luck with the search!

Thanks for the reply. I agree with you entirely. The challenge is finding one on the west coast as no one seems willing to sell.

I just bought a 2001 Catalina 30 MK III. Sail# 6444
I have been looking for one on this coast for years. While sailing my 1977 C-30 Hold Fast #0796, I followed this new one into it's slip in Marina Del Rey. I docked my boat, ran over to the other boat's slip and offered to buy the boat if they would sell. Three months later, I am the new owner of Riff Raff ! I got very lucky and I'm very happy.
Good luck! By the way, that was the third MK III that was not for sale I had offered to buy.

A '78 would definitely not be a MK III. And the asking price is pretty high.
The one SkipperJohn linked to looks nice.
