re: solar power for catalina 27 i used a 64 watt panel last year and it covered my usage most of the time. i use the lights a lot, small gps, vhf, autotiller, and a bilge pump which runs a few times per day shaft seal drips a bit too much - on spring repair list.

bilge sole i have a similar issue and will be glad to share with you what i have learned from several other c-27 groups. my 1977 cat '27 has, as do most others, a wood laminate underneath the bilge sole. why catalina every used wood, who knows?
i have a 86 cat 27 that had the same problem. there are 4 screws that hold down the bilge cover. some were stripped out and were a pain to remove. i made and attached a wooden 'l' bracket under the aft side of the cover. on the fore side i got one of those quarter turn hatch locks with a t handle that folds down flush.

well, i had to admit i rarely think about the catalina 27, but when i do, i recollect that there are good reasons why it's one of the most popular small sailboats in the united states. she was designed and built by southern californian frank butler, and well over 6,000 have been built.

i have a catalina 27 1972 . and the cabin sole as you enter the v-berth is starting to get soft and a little crunchy. sounds like wood rot. i checked the bilge, and there's water in there brown probably from the wood rotting. i'm trying to figure out if the catalina smile has set it, flooded the bilge and rotted out the core of that area.
electrical panel for a catalina 27 the bilge pump work and my instruments, but i don't think they are connected to the old switchboard. how ever all the lights are connected to the board. what would be the most obvious errors to look for? the fuses seem to be good.
i want to rebuild the bilge area of my catalina 27. are there any video's or pictures of someone doing this work. i hate to just dive in without any real direction. i have been getting water in my bilge. about 1 inch. not sure where it is coming from. i repaired the catalina smile by filling in the crack and fiberglassing the area last spring.
does anyone know where i can purchase the floor board that covers the bilge in an 82 catalina 27? it measures about 5'6'. the one i have now is just painted 1/4' ply.

welcome aboard welcome to the catalina 36/375 international association, the world's leading source of information on the catalina c36 and c375 sailboats, manufactured by catalina yachts of southern california and largo, florida.
the catalina 27 has been in production since 1971, and well over 6,000 of them have been built. this is undoubtedly the largest production run of any 27 sailboat in us history, and probably the biggest anywhere. the flip side of the coin is that catalinas are known as cheaply built boats, with lots of corners cut in places they shouldn t be cut.
