The pic. is of a pre 1972 Katama 16'6" whaler. The original model had a white seat.The rails all look original. I have one, see page 30 of the Cetacta for pic. of mine. If you have the hull no. we can tell year of manufacture.

I'm not 100% certain, but I think that far
back, it's on the inside of the anchor locker,
stenciled on the aft wall of the locker.
Later models (after HINs were legally required)
have it molded in on the starboard transom
just below the rubrail and on the aft wall
of the anchor locker.

I went over and found this one per your directions. Looks well used, lots of dings, but nothing too tough to fix. Rail needs replacement, etc.

But there was no sign on it, and no phone #...I left a card with my phone #..

The Hull number I found under the motor was

The 115 looks like it was mounted too high...where should the cav plate be relative to the hull (I thought it should be flush with the keel, but this is a couple of inches high, I'd guess.

Isn't 115 too much motor for this boat? I have a period ('71) Johnson (85 Hp) that might do just fine...hmm.

Oh, yeah. One more observation...the seats shown in the photo were probably tractor seats mounted on the white plastic base.

The base has two depressions, which probably held cushions originally.
