Katama Bow Railing

I have often noticed on my 71 Katama when waxing the inside the areas in the hull where it has been beefed up for bow railing attach points and was wondering if any katamas had ever come with these rails. I'm aware that in this era of boat BW used the same hull for different models and options but just thought I'd ask if anyone has ever seen one that came that way from the factory or know if it could have been special ordered that way.

My 74 has a OEM bow rail, and it looks like it was factory installed, although I can't be sure, since I am 2nd owner.

My 69 Minot (it's a Katama without the windshield) supposedly has factory bow rails on it. I say supposedly because the mounting screws are Phillips head but the rear rails are mounted with standard slotted screws.

i am not sure what exactly you are asking. i previously owned an original Katama and yes it did have bow rails from the factory. the places where the bow rails mounted were no different than any other 1973 (blue interior) or later whaler that i know of. steve out.
