The rear engine compartment “box” completely unscrews from the boat giving you good access to engine on the MkII boats (I have a C34 with the same engine). MkI boats should have a similar set up as Catalina designs all their wooden bulkheads to be removable. I took the opportunity to install sound dampening insulation back there when I had mine out. Catalina paints a barrier coat in all bilge areas so you shouldn’t have to, unless you want to “freshen it up” or do a little redecorating.
