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.
The weatherboard is the teak trim that is secured to the aft surface of the companionway sliding hatch. For boats beginning with hull #2156 there is a different weatherboard for pop top version boats. We believe, and some owners report, this weatherboard fits all Catalina 25's (pop top or standard) built before hull #2156.
Unfortunately, there are no records of the shape of different versions of the weatherboards used by Catalina Yachts. We have confirmed this weatherboard fits some early standard top boats and some early pop top boats. But we have no way of knowing if it fits all of them. We have provided measurements for you to compare with your existing weatherboard.
1) 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.
2) Please verify measurements of your weatherboard before ordering.
3) 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.
