Kadey-Krogen 42 pilothouse doors

Just saw my new solid teak pilothouse doors. OMG what an improvement. Dmitriy my trusty teak carpenter (www.marineteak.com) in St. Pete Florida just rescued my boat! The new doors are stunning. No more plywood, solid teak, beveled edges. I知 so jazzed! 2k for two doors what a steal. Anyone know who the OEM door hardware supplier was? I知 not looking for the hinges, rather the handles etc. my 1982 KK42 hardware is unbranded.

Could be P.O. replacements on mine (although they sure look OEM). Mine were used and abused and ultimately painted by P.O. with Kilz. Upon stripping, mass wood filler in each corner of lower panel. New doors are solid teak 1.25” thick 9” wide boards epoxied together with biscuits. Feels like a bank door vault.

Do you have pictures perchance? I'm trying to decide between white aluminum replacements or teak replacements.

Old vs new.

Restoration vs rejuvenation...

If you’re considering aluminum replacements, I have seen a couple of KK42s that replaced theirs with ones made by Diamond Sea Glaze. They looked sharp and definitely are an upgrade. Diamond Sea Glaze may still have the patterns. With the exchange rate in our favor....

I'm considering aluminum and teak. Al for the ocean going and updating the boat, and teak if I decide to keep the current look and feel that teak is strong enough. Leaning towards aluminum at the moment, the Kadey is ocean capable, and I feel that updates that make it more so increase it's value, versus keeping it as a show/antique/precious/don't go far boat.

Also, for those who have done the aluminum, what's the process like?

Call/order, they ship to your yard, they install? Cutting of the pilothouse required, or snug fit to current opening? Any downsides/issues?

I have a related question. The side hatches on our Defever rattle noticeably when the Lehmans are idling. Do any of you have that issue or found a cure for it? I知 thinking of some felt insulation strips but would consider anything already proven to work.

A few years ago I talked to a KK owner who had DSG doors fabricated. My memory is *very* fuzzy but I think he quoted around $6K a door. I do know I thought "wow, expensive".

Kadey-Krogen 42 pilothouse doors

I believe David Hoar had aluminium doors made for Pacific Sapphire. He has since sold the boat. If I recall correctly, it was a difficult fabrication and he had to work with the installation quite a bit.

If they are 6K per door, then a substantial teak door is the way I'm going. Looks better, much less cost, and I believe for a premium could be made as well or better...

I did not think aluminum would be that costly.

Richard, yes, pretty sure you started the thread...

In addition, I will probably use your recommendation after all the discussion. I have some other priorities first, and I'm trying to think if I have enough teak whether it's best just to take her down to St. Pete next year for easier measuring/fitting.

You have pics of your doors by chance to show off?
