Logbook and maintenance notes for Catalina 34 sail number 1752

The written record from launch in May 2006 until January 2009 is incomplete but be assured that all routine maintenance has been done, particularly engine oil change and filter, and engine heat exchanger anode checks. The transmission fluid ATF has also been replaced with this period.

The engine anode must be checked regularly as it will not last for 12 months, eight months being more typical. From the previous logbook, the first oil and filter change were done at 35 engine hours and the second at 96 engine hours, when the fuel filter was also changed. In June 2008, the autopilot motor was replaced due to burn out by overheating on a particularly rough channel crossing.

After purchase of the new logbook in January2009 the maintenance log has been kept up and the relevant pages are photocopied here. The complete set of documentation, as supplied with the new boat, is intact with all maintenance manuals. All invoices for major work are included.

It has been found that the water pump impeller will last much longer than one- or two-year interval when a change is recommended although it has been regularly inspected.

The fuel consumption has been in the region of 2.3 l per hour.

New batteries were fitted in 2014 and separate starter battery was added to allow the house bank to be very large comprising four golf cart batteries. At the same time the charging system was altered to prioritise charge to the engine battery and this wiring change is fully documented within this literature. The advice for this change was obtained from a Catalina support website. The Catalina 34 had a very long production run and there is extensive knowledge about this boat on the internet. Recommended websites are cat, and Catalina direct (for spare parts.) It should be noted that almost all spare parts are readily obtainable in the UK because Catalina use worldwide suppliers such as Lewmar and I have never had a problem obtaining any spare part that I required.

The Leisurefurl in Boom reefing is highly recommended and the only spare part it has required was a bearing and on contact with Leisurefurl USA they sent a replacement bearing free of any charge because they had found a better design for this bearing.

Catalina builds the boat before any ancillaries are fitted so that it is possible to replace any parts including the engine without any destructive dismantling. In particular the rear panels in the aft cabin are easily removed to service the heat exchanger and the water hoses at the rear of the engine, shaft seal and change the gearbox oil.

During an attempt to remove condensation from the tachometer, I managed to cause a short which destroyed the tachometer and engine hours meter. This was replaced in June 2016 and had 1202 hours on the clock which must added to the current engine hours reading to give the correct total.

In March 2016, the Cutless bearing was professionally replaced. This involves dropping the rudder. Dropping the rudder is straightforward job but does need the boat to be lifted.

In October 2020, the anchor windless motor was replaced and the bearing and oil seals at the same time. This procedure is documented here and again is relatively simple.
