Our Catalina Direct Clubhouse provides a forum where Catalina owners can exchange information about their boats. Discussions are continuous and interesting. Ask for advice, answer questions posed by other Catalina owners or just listen in. There are currently more than 550 active sailors participating in this forum. There is no charge for participation. It is a free service provided by Catalina Direct.

Don't confuse the login hyperlink text in the forum with the blue login button for the store. At the moment they are two different unrelated databases. Use the logon hyperlink text for the Clubhouse.
Welcome to the Catalina Direct Clubhouse!
The fine print: Catalina Direct may on occasion send you an e-mail informing you of one of our new products or a special price. These products will always be related to your Catalina. We may also inform you of a Catalina related event such as a national regatta or Catalina Yachts Rendezvous that we think may interest you. Please trust that our interests, like yours, are in sailing Catalinas. We have no interest in selling your name or address, and frankly do not have the time to inundate you with e-mail ourselves.
