What boat is this?

I took this picture in San Pedro, Belize about a week before Hurricane Mitch hit. I have never been able to figure out who manufactured it...

hard to tell from that angle. I'd guess one of the production boats, Catalina, Pearson, Columbia, etc...

My eyes arenít good enough to distinguish any identifiable features on the cove stripe.
Perhaps Catalina?
Those /w better vision might spot a comparative listing at Good Old Boat magazineís Boat Identifier site:

Boat

It looks like a Catalina 27 to me. Would need more pictures to be sure. If it is a Catalina 27 then you are looking at one of the reasons I do not like them.

Mike, the latter Catalina 27's (and this would be a latter one - lights not in the right location for earlier ones, nor the type used) were lighter built than the earlier ones. The early ones were over built like most boats in the seventies; it was one of those, "maybe we'll add an extra layer just to be sure" deals.

My best guess is Catalina 30 - definitely an early 80s Catalina because of that rubrail and 'eyeball' bow lights.
