Catalina 22 sliding hatch boards???

I'm looking for sliding hatch boards for my catalina 22. The ones I have now are worn, discolored, and weathered. I'm trying to find someone or someplace that carries hatch boards, and so far I have found nothing. Any feedback or help would be appreciated.

You can buy almost ANY part for your Catalina 22 from:

Tel 916-843-1970

They publish a comprehensive catalog, and are very nice and efficient folks to deal with.

Catalina Direct also has an on line store here: http://www.catalinadirect.com/

You can do a search for "crib boards" to find them.

The originals may be restored to "almost new" condition by sanding them down and refinishing. Otherwise they can be used as a pattern to cut new ones.

In either case, if you're not into the idea of a diy project, your local marina should be able to point you to a carpenter who you could hire.

If you decide to make new ones, wood is not the only option. Some are plastic and may resist the weather better than wood. I have seen some in clear or tinted lexan to allow more light inside. I have a set of screens made to fit that allow ventilation while keeping insects out.

Be of good courage. I am cheap, so will advise you to try refinishing.

Get the old finish (if any) off the wood. Use a stripper to minimize unnecessary wood loss from sanding.

Assuming they are teak, start with some good teak cleaner, then rinse thoroughly and let dry. This should remove black stains.

Sand them with #120 grit sandpaper and a sanding block, or use a vibrating sander, try to get back to clean looking wood. You may be limited in the amount of sanding you can do if your are dealing with plywood. Don't sweat it, get the surface as smooth as you can without breaking through the finish ply.

Finish sand with # 180 or 220 sandpaper

Using a good grade of exterior spar varnish, brush (foam or natural bristle) on a first coat thinned a little with turpentine. Follow with about 8 additional un-thinned coats, rubbing down with scotchbrite or 220 grit sandpaper between coats. Wipe down thoroughly just before applying new varnish.

Perfection may not be achievable, but they will look a lot better.

Add a couple of coats each season.

doubt they much care, as they needed the boards three years ago... and probably have already found new ones.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
