Cabin Door won''''t close

Look for a wooden compression post that has rotted on it''s bottom as it sits in the bilge. Havent been in a C&C for a while and I quite dont remember if they have a wood post. Typical wood posts are held in place with a ''socket'' made of GRP tabbing that when installed have an additional wooden wedge driven in to jack/load the post. If you cannot see the condition of the post because of the ''socket'' you may have to drill a teeny hole - then examine the drillings for rot. All the same comments apply to tabbed-in bulkheads (but usually no wedge). .....
A significant shift in interior joinerwork, etc. usually means you have lost intergrity in some structural member. Poor jackstand placement can cause this - but rarely
