Since you're sailing a Catalina 27, it might pay to contact Catalina about a replacement panel from the factory. I suspect it might be the least costly option verses a 2nd party product and Catalina is usually pretty good about such things.

FWIW...

PS: If you do change the panel, be sure to label each of the wires as you disconnect them from the old panel!
