The Railwood is the teak part that supports the sliding hatch on your Catalina 22. In order to reduce both the cost and maintenance associated with teak, we have duplicated the functionality of your teak part in King Starboard marine plastic. Starboard is a UV stabilized product that won't degrade in the sun. The plastic also eliminates the cracking and splitting inherent in wood.
To make the most efficient use of the raw material, we have modified the dimension of the plastic railwood slightly compared to the wood. Since it is a more stable material than wood, we can make it a lower profile without fear of splitting. This reduces your cost of the parts significantly.
Please see your Catalina Direct Owners Handbook page 4.34 to determine which parts have the correct measurements to fit your boat.
This part may also be used as a substitute for our #D1810 Teak Railwood Type A. Although shorter, it will function the same as the shorter railwood used on the sliding hatch of a pop top equipped boat. When the sliding hatch is in its most forward position, a small portion of the front of the hatch will extend forward of the railwood without and negative effect. Sorry, there is simply no efficient way to fabricate the type A railwood from the shape of the plastic raw material available. The finished product is simply too expensive.
