Where Credit is Due: September 2011


We recently purchased a 2002 Catalina 470 and discovered a very tired boom vang. The first call to the maker, Garhauer Marine Hardware (www.garhauermarine.com) provided disassembly instructions, “what’s inside the tube” information, and fit options. The second call was a discussion of the springs that should have been in the tube versus what we found in the tube. Garhauer sent us the correct springs at no charge, and now the boom is self-supporting! This boat has given us our first interactions with Garhauer, and we’re hooked due, in no small part, to the great service!
