Encore's new owner

Greetings all, 

I just completed the purchase of ENCORE (#1245).  I'm in Virginia Beach and will be cruising the Chesapeake as much as I can.  Looking forward to interacting with the group and learning more about my new (to me) boat.   

Thanks,
Jay

Jay,
Welcome aboard !
The group here has been most helpful and one of the reasons I bought a Catalina 36. There is a great deal of info in the tech section.
 I see that you listed that you have an M-35 engine. Is that a standard M-35 or an A or  B model ? Sometimes that helps when answering questions.

Hi Bill and thank you for the greating.   I'm not sure which it is, I'll look when I go out to the boat again today.  Do you know how would I be able to tell the difference?

Welcome Jay.  Are you sure about your hull number / model year?  Mine is a 1993 MK1.5, hull number 1238.  If yours is hull 1245, your model year should be 1993 or 1994 I would think.

Hi Don, Well it must be like cars then.  The original delivery documentation was from OCT 92 and the CG Cert of Doc says year completed 1992, but I have other paperwork that says 1993, and the registration number ends in 93.  So I guess the 1993 models were built and released starting in 1992?  I know for sure that it is hull #1245.

Re: the M35 original vs. A or B, after searching for manuals online and downloading the one for the B and looking at my engine, I realized it was NOT a B.  I then downloaded another manual that indicated it was for the M35 A.  Also did not look like our engine.  I finally found a manual with NO A or B designation that is identical to ours, so it seems to me that there might have been a change between the Kubota engine blocks between '91 (no designation) and '92 or '93 that saw the A designation added?  Or I'm just confused...a strong possiblity...

Thanks Bill!

After doing some work on the raw water side i noticed the engine info plate, it had fallen off and gotten wedged in.  It says M35AC.  Mystery solved!
