I've attached 2 photos of a Cat27 i looked at recently. It had a great door set up which attached to the closet across from the head. Check it out.

7tiger7 Maybe I can find a wrecked Catalina at the junkyard and get the door off it...

I might just try to find a door that looks like that at some marine store, and install it with a piano hinge.
Paul - thanks for the photos (any chance you have the measurements handy? I know I'm asking for a lot).

Harryeod I have a 27 foot Cheoy Lee Offshore and the doors are a royal pain in the A$%! There is just not enough room to have them installed. I've decided to put in a curtain that I can roll up or push aside easily.

cardiacpaul LOL, leaking windows. you're kidding right?

really, one of mine did leak, and I afro-american engineered them so now they don't.

geary126 I've got Paul's door, too. Which is to say, I ripped his off

Naaah. Catalina 30 door is a bi-fold door, slides to the side, cut short on the top by about 1.25"

Hey, Paul, on another subject--have you fixed your leaking windows--or do they not leak. I think mine have a leak, and I'm mulling over my options.
