Catalina 30 hull section drawings

My wife and I purchased a Catalina 30T with a wing keel this past spring. I've found a storage trailer for it. The trailer is heavy duty and built for a sailboat. The standard Catalina 30 cradle has 2 poppets on each side and is 12' long. The trailer I purchased has 4 poppets on each side and is 18' long (bow poppet to stern poppet). I need to adjust the locations of the poppets to match the hull of the boat. In order to get them close (before lifting the boat out of the water) I need drawings of the hull. I am checking to see if Catalina can provide any for me. The Int'l Catalina 30 Owners group doesn't have any that I could find. Anyone out there have any? Thanks!

If you email catalina from their website their engineering department will get back to you directly. I had several questions for them last year and they got back to me with drawings and suggestions with in 1 to 2 business days. They were awesome and even quickly answered follow up questions promptly

Re: Catalina 30 hull section drawings

Thanks ontherocks83! I have somewhat of a contact at Catalina and emailed them last week. The response I received was that they don't have hull drawings and use an adjustable trailer. A bit disappointing! I do have an adjustable trailer but I need to make some macro adjustments before the boat gets on the crane hook. Will keep searching for drawings.

Re: Catalina 30 hull section drawings

They made ~7500 catalina 30's. Surely there's one somewhere in a yard around you that you could measure. I'd measure mine for you, but alas, it's in the water.
