This is a heavy duty version of the stanchion used on the Catalina 28. The specific change of the stanchion is not recorded, but we believe the high/low main leg base and support base both mounted on the toe rail, started in 1995. These are only sold in sets that include both port and starboard. For the earlier version with a flat main leg base that mounts to the deck and an elevated support leg that mounts to the toerail, see part number K1805 and K1806.
This custom gate stanchion has thick .120 stainless tubing (compared to the original .049). The base material is thicker 5/32" plate stainless steel. The aft foot mounts on the toerail with a 1/2" through-bolt welded into the stanchion and has two holes to mount to the deck. The forward foot mounts to the toerail with two bolts. Compare with your gate stanchion before ordering as Catalina used more than one gate stanchion on several models without recording the date of the change.
The information above is believed to be correct but it is not complete due to Catalina's incomplete records on the subject. These stanchions may have been used on other models or years that we are not aware of.
