cal 27 interior repair question and mods

I removed the mirror in my 27 cal, and I planned on finding a cheap repair made by a previous owner(You could see it when the door to the head is shut). I have already removed the plywood, and rerouted those wires that were hanging in the way.

I can get a 3x5 marine grade Okoume for around $70. Any suggestions for something less expensive? The boat is a 73 so it may have a few leaks here and there. I am not too worried about matching the teak, because I plan to run white oak flooring left to right above the sink to hide the seam. You will only see the seam from the back when you shut the sliding door to the head.

I am missing the cover to my deck pipe. I checked online for a replacement cap, but came up with nothing. Any suggestions?

I am also rerouting my shore power so that I can plug it in without going through the companion way with the cord. The cord can fit through a cut out in the lazaret. Do I need a proper inlet since it is covered, or can I get away with just a simple cord inlet?

I hope my questions aren't too sporadic. I am sure I will come up with more as we progress.

Check places like sailboatjunkyard.com for the cap. I'd use a proper electrical connection.

Re: cal 27 interior repair question and mods

The shore power currently goes through the companion way, and connects to a male connector (30A 125V Locking Shore Power Plug - Marinco 305CRPN - iboats) under the step. The male connector is wired to a breaker box with marine grade 10 gauge. All I would do is fish the wire under the cockpit to the lazaret. What are my risks doing it that way? The connector will be suspended keeping it off the bottom.

Re: cal 27 interior repair question and mods

I ended up going with a 3x5 piece of Okoume marine ply, and I cut out the white oak. Any thoughts on if I should try to stain or varnish to match the surrounding, or if I should keep it blond and seal the wood?

I found some serious rot in some of the teak ply in the cabin. Not sure where the water seeped in to cause this issue. Is there a chemical that I can eject into the wood to fix the issue (wishful thinking).

I'd varnish it (by the looks of the surrounding, 12 coats might match pretty well).

Nice

I have never used varnish. Does it seal the wood, or will I need to apply something along with the varnish?

Re: cal 27 interior repair question and mods

Finally finished the project for now. Let me know your thoughts.

The color in person, seems to be a good contrast.

Re: cal 27 interior repair question and mods

Try minwax "gunstock" stain. Put it on then wipe it off with a clean rag. It should come real close to matching your teak. Try it on a sample piece first!
