catalina 27

I'm new to these forums so I apologize if I am not posting this in the right place.

I am in need of a new companionway sliding hatch for a 1976 Catalina27.

If anyone has one, or knows where I can get one, please send a PM.

Thanks.

Re: catalina 27

You might try calling the factory. Their after-sales support is remarkable.

You might also try contacting Catalina Direct: I checked the site and it's not something that they stock but they may well have a line on where one can be obtained.

I don't think the OP can receive PMs with only one post.

He/she might also try posting a message on the C27 owners site:

Re: catalina 27

I think he is looking for the whole hatch, not only the boards that it slides in. I'd be checking with junk yards.

Is the current one broken or missing? The failure mode on these wouldn't be too hard to repair. They wear out along the track, you would just need to glass on a new flange.

Re: catalina 27

Thanks for the replies y'all.

I am speaking with the Catalina factory in Largo and they assure me they can make one- just as soon as they find the mold. Been speaking to them for almost 2 weeks now so my hopes are dwindling. CatalinaDirect told me they could not help, speak to the factory in Largo....

The hatch came up missing after I had the boat transported. The rails are still there and undamaged.

I'm also calling every used parts supplier I can find. Most of them are just blowing me off, the rest are still looking/getting back to me. If you have a favorite used parts supplier, let me know. It is possible I haven't spoken to them yet.

DRFerron, I'll try that forum. Thanks.

BTW, this has been a nightmare. A word to the wise: strap the hatch down before transport.

Don't get your hopes up. They've been making me a new dinette table for a couple of years now .
