Re: Catalina 310 Forward Bulkhead Deflection


I'm terribly sorry about Necroing an old thread. I checked out the forum rules and I didn't see anything mentioning old threads specifically. However I am Trying to Reach Pchazel and apparently my post count is not high enough to do so yet.

I am having this same forward bulkhead deflection problem on my 2000 C-310. I contacted Gerry Douglas at Catalina however he did not seem to indicate that it was a known issue. I have Hull #31. I am interested in the process that Pchazel used to insert the shim, particularly, how to handle the standard rigging during the process, how to determine the size of shim needed, if Catalina sent the shim to him directly, etc...

If anyone else can contribute or advise my on how to jack up the compression post I would be very appreciative.
