After 66 years supplying the marine industry, Catalina’s primary teak manufacturer closed. Their equipment has been liquidated and the factory sold. We have contracted with an experienced marine millwright who is manufacturing teak parts for us using the original patterns developed for Catalina's original equipment parts. We are excited about this ability to continue to offer replacements for your aging teak.
This is the teak trim used on aft end of sliding hatch. Fits second generation boats equipped with a pop top. These boats were built from 1986 through 1994 and did not have ribs on the top. The thickness of the teak allows the aft surface of the forward hatch to be aft of the crib boards when slid fully shut. This minimizes water intrusion through the companionway in wet weather. The locking hasp mounts to this part.
Most boats built during this period included a single loop teak handrail to make it more convenient to slide the hatch closed. See link below for the correct handrail.
1) Please verify measurements of your weatherboard before ordering. Many teak parts were supplied to Catalina as partially finished "blanks". The final shape was determined by the craftsmen who built your boat. For example, we have not cut the small notches to port and starboard. They vary significantly from boat to boat. You will need the cut the notches to fit. In fact, you may be able to cut smaller notches than were originally installed and thereby reduce the amount of water that can enter the hatch at the corners. Consider this part to be a starting point to be modified to fit your boat, not as the finished shape.
2) Regarding Teak Prices: Due to the volatility of the price of teak wood all teak prices are our closest estimate. If the price indicated above has increased we will contact you prior to shipping.
