Chris Craft Catalina 251

Hi, I have a 1979 Chris Craft Catalina 251 (25 foot), and I was wondering if anyone had a side profile drawing of one I could use to engineer my hardtop off of?

Thanks-

Eric J.

Re: Chris Craft Catalina 251

Hey Eric...welcome to the forum.
I've done quite a bit of searching and haven't had any luck finding that profile.
I ended up taking a photo of mine and working off that...I had the original drawings but had made to many modifications for them to be useful.
Have you had any luck?

Re: Chris Craft Catalina 251

That looks suitable to sort a hard top from...more details as you progress..i.e. what material are you constructing it from...
