Re: Catalina 27 Maintenance - Where to start

Bulkhead and chainplates are critical. A good article by Dan Witucki on the website epoxyworks.com. has detailed information on replacing rotted bulkheads. The leaks that lead to bulkhead rot will keep the bolts and chain plates moist, thereby, promoting crevice corrosion.When you remove the chainplates, check the SS bolts for crevice corrosion.

On most boat projects, the value of the labor far exceeds the cost of materials. Do the work right, using the right materials to avoid having to do it again.
