From CP's description, any door you make should leave about an inch of clearance at the top and bottom.

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.

My 1976 Catalina 27 has a wooden "curtain" that closes off the head. The rails along the top have come loose from the headliner, so the curtain just flaps...

Anyone know if I find a pre-made door (teak?) that I can just bolt into place on there? Just attach hinges on the bulkhead, and presto?
Door shouldn't be too difficult. Cut it out of plywood and then cover it with veneer... If you get creative you might be able to make it swing far enough to close off your V-Berth (or maybe not - have no idea what your boat is like inside... )

But I am really curious about what a "Wood Curtain" is ???

Hi Guys -

I'll try to take a pic of my wood curtain and post it here.
But - I'm intrigued by Paul's Catalina 76. Same year as mine, but has a real door.
Paul - which interior do you have? Traditional? Is the door original?
I'd love to see more picture of the door, and where it mounts, how it swings.

Thanks!
Phillip

I just built a maghogany door for my head. The size was 19.5 x 68.25. I got the tounge & grove mahogany 6 inch wide boards from a local cabinet shop for $35.00. I used a Z brace to hold it all together. My head also has a curtain that is pulled close when using the shower.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Hi Paul -
Are you up in Maine or something? Or does everyone outside the tri-state area talk like that?
Does your door look like it is OEM, or aftermarket? In the parts catalogue, it seems that they show the "wood curtain" for the head.
Please take pics (lots) when you get a chance. Or, if you are up in Maine, I could come up one weekend to see it (and buy you lunch as thanks) I'm in Boston.
Cheers
Phillip

Its OEM as far as I know, and no, I'm about as far as I can get from Maine, down here on the Tx/Ok border. In one of my previous moments of weakness, I was once married to a chicklet from Woodstock NB that now resides in Bath, ME. Is that close enough, eh?

With any luck, I'll get the current wahini (aka "TheCuban") to take a stroll with me tomorrow via the pontoon boat to grab some new pics.
