A couple weeks ago I bought one very, very nearly complete Catalina N157AB down in Florida. I'm trailering her home to Seattle in short legs; she's currently stored near Dallas.
The nice thing about this plane is it has thorough construction manuals and documentation. I hope to get these all scanned and available soon.
I'm pretty excited to get her home and get to working on the todo list. Please recommend any further Catalina resources and groups that may be out there, I'm eager to interact and learn.
