nav parts for older Catalina 27

I would like to know where to find VDO anemometer cups for
1976 Catalina 27. Have had no luck with Web search.
Do not want to replace entire unit.
Also need cable and propellor for VDO knot meter.

More stuff and places to look

Hiya tweaker!

Anyhow, you would be wise to check with Catalina, they have everything original as well as upgraded parts for folks like us who have vintage 27’s. As well, Catalina Direct is very helpful, but more expensive. Also, for detailed advice on Catalina sailboats in general, try There’s message boards / forums that are very active and a great many people who have the same boat you do. (don’t abandon this forum, there’s loads of experienced fun people here too)

Later, eh!

I second Fergs' advice on checking out those two websites.

I have those two websites bookmarked into my favorite places. You never know when you might need to get some sort of information?
