My # 1 tip. Do not assume that the boat is symmetrical.

Do each section independently.

I assumed and when I put my C250 away for the winter, I removed the lifelines from just the port side of the boat and built two identical sets. I ended up about 1.5 inches short on the starboard side.

So . . . . it sounds sorta like when laying a slate patio: all the parts will fit but just not quite where you think they Will! As I recall, the opening gates are where the adjustments can most easily be made. But I agree, lay things out first, then measure, then measure again, then attach!

I bought mine through Defender Marine. On the C250 Specific Forum I wrote up my lifeline replacement and it has a parts list. I am sure it could be modified to get you the right parts for a Catalina 25.
