  General Condition
The Catalina 34 is one of the most popular racer cruisers on the water and with good reason. She's fast and fun to sail, and her comfortable layout below makes her the perfect cruiser or live-aboard!
  Actual Condition
It is reported this 34' Catalina hit a submerged rock structure in the San Francisco Bay off Berkeley, traveling approximately 5 knots with the sails up and reportedly sailed back to its slip in San Francisco.

Damage reported:
The lead keel fin is heavily indented on the forward leading edge from about 18 inches up and down to the bottom. The keel fin to hull stub joint is fractured on the leading edge back 2 feet on the portside and 18 inches on the starboard side.
The trailing edge of the lead keel bottom aft end is bent heavily to starboard for about 6 inches up and 6 inches forward.
The hull is fractured across just aft of the keel about 12 inches in each direction. The fracture appears to be through the laminate requiring repair from both the exterior and interior.

The radius of the keel stub to the hull appears fractured on both sides from the aft end forward about halfway. Several of the secondary bonds on the transverse floor frames inside have new fractures on the portside. Repairs to the keel and floor frame structure will require removal of the interior liner and at least part of the settee structure to access the transverse frames for repair. The repair may require removal of mast sitting on the mast step on top of the keel structure.

A water leak stain was noted running down the front end of the keel out of a large gap between the keel fin and the
molded in keel stub. The stain is consistent with bilge water leaking out after the boat was hauled and blocked.
This may require that the keel fin be separated from the keel stub to affect repairs. The spade rudder is heavily broken on the bottom with stress fractures on the portside that are weeping water out of the gel coat from the foam core. The rudder shaft itself, which is normally a 1” thick-walled stainless-steel tubing, is bent slightly as noted by the narrow gap towards the end of the rudder between the rudder and the hull.
