Fixing sliding companionway hatch

First, please forgive lack of proper terminology. I just bought a boat after 30 boat-less years, and I spend a lot of time thinking.. "that thing has a name, doesn't it.....?"

Also should have read that long funny post about why you shouldn't buy the bargain boat/fixer upper BEFORE acquiring this one.

So. The companion way sliding hatch is held in place by a stip of wood with a groove in it (the flange on the hatch is retained by this groove as it slides..). On one side, the upper portion of the wood has broken off about half its length. Hatch slides OK, leaks a little, looks awful.

I have seen replacements for these intended for larger boats, in the Catalina store. I should note that mine is a 17 Holder, so the Catalina 22 is a "larger" boat.

Will I be able to modify this? Anyone have any other ideas? I am also concerned because this strip (name, please!) is slightly curved and the ones I've found on line are straight.

They should be pretty easy to reproduce in teak, mahogany or white oak.

You could also make the piece out of STARBOARD or UHMWPE. Photos would help...Recommend you read the POST in my sig to get the most out of sailnet.

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.

Might want to read the OP again. He doesn't have a Catalina, he has a HOLDER 17.

I don't have the same size vessel, but I did place a strip of polycarbonate under the slide and bordered it with black starboard plastic.



The polycarbonate strip makes for a smooth and quiet slide. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
