Gooseneck fitting replacement

At SailNet Gear & Maintenance forum, one suggestion (through September 14, 2009) on replacing a missing gooseneck fitting.
"...the people at Catalina can likely help you. If not you may be able to find something suitable from Dwyer - they make masts and fittings."

Daggerboard hard to move; cuddy door deteriorating;

Suggestions from Chris at SailNet gear and maintenance forum as of July-August 2006,
"...The problem with the dagger board is most likely due to water getting into the fiberglass shell and swelling it up. I dont know where to find a replacement, but I imagine you could get one made. Its not too complicated of a piece of equipment.

Re: the hatch, just have a piece of teak cut to the same dimensions. ..."

Same presumably goes for a missing cuddy door.
