    I a refitting an Omega 14. The centerboard trunk seals are pretty raggy. Are they interchangeable with the Capri 14.2 and if so where can I purchase a set??

    re ;CB gasket set

    the part #85034 gasket set is for the14.2 Don't know if it would fit the omega 14 or not. You could call Catalina Yachts @ 818 884-7700 and ask for parts to check. The technical staff seem knowledgable and helpful. I'm also doing a partial refit of my new/old Omega 14.

    centerboard gasket photos

    I took my Omega off the trailer this morning to clean up the hull and checked the gasket. It's 54" long and each gasket is abou 1-1/4" wide. See the link below for some photos.

    Thanks guys.

    Thanks for all the info. I am awaiting a response from Catalina concerning the gasket kit.
    Catomega, did you use the kit or other material for your retrofit?
    What is the chunk of steel in the floor of the cuddy?
    I have a friend in South Carolina who has also rebuilt an Omega 14. He has added a self-tending jib arrangement as well as redoing the cockpit bringing all lines aft. If you are interested, I will contact him and bring him into the loop.

    An Omega rebuild in South Carolina

    I have sent a request to my friend for pics of his work.
    I hope he comes through because the work is inspiring.

    new centerboard gasket from Catalina!

    :) I got the parts from the Sailboat Shop, different gasket, new parts fit exactly as planned. There are several Omega parts still available from Catalina. The parts were about $25.00

    Part Numbers

    Hi Catomega,
    Thanks for remembering my question. Do you have any part numbers? I sent Catalina an inquiry two weeks ago, but have yet to receive a reply. Perhaps a dealer is the best way to go?
    Fair Winds,
