[QUOTE=carlspackler;904178]I can't quite figure out how to access behind the paneling separating the main dining area from the head. The screws that go through it are structural and obviously hold the chainplates in place. The mast
stepped atop the corner that the door to the head swings on.
We have been restoring a 1984 Camper & Nicholson 58 for 5 years. Just last spring I found yet another hidden panel. THe marquetry is so goo that it is nearly impossible to see hidden joints. To remove this one, I have to wear tacky rubber gloves and pull/slide the sections apart. Turns out oto be a great hiding place. We found a similar cubby the year before with two directors chairs stored inside.
If it is a hollow section, there is likely a way in although, the builder
may have glued it all as one. see if you can find a Catalina
group or contact the manufacturer.
