1978 Pearson 26 One Design, top side redo

I own a 1978 Pearson 26 OD. The boat took some minor damage to the bow pulpit during Hurricane Katrina and is now showing signs of deck de-lamination.

I have found someone to do the fiberglass/painting work for me this fall. And i have decided to have the entire topside repainted. I am looking for some hardware:

Bow chocks (they are 5")
Hatch hinges (i can probably replace these but I would like some original)


I am toying around with the idea of replacing both bow chocks with 5" cleats. I am concerned that they are too close to the hull/deck joint.

Ill post pictures later today
