Hi,
Looking to see if anyone has dimensions for the main bulk heads and the sink counter top across from the head.
Thank you.

Editing my post on this, I realize that you probably need some assistance on this.

Which cabin layout do you have? This might influence the shapes of the two aft bulkheads.

The shape and all incremental dimensions of the 4 bulkheads would probably defy categorization. The outer edges are straight, however, the tops follow the curved inside of the cabin roof, then down by the deck-hull joint, there’s the shelf. Below the joint, the hide behind the seating, and are attached to the head sink base on the starboard side and the floor and port side bench settee with a standard layout. My cabin is the dinette style with a different port side aft bulkhead.

I don’t know, but I would suspect that the two forward bulkheads are the same on all C25s regardless of the cabin style.

If you still have them available, you could trace the outlines of the old bulkheads to replace them with new materials. Can you get 3/4” marine plywood with a teak or mahogany veneer? There’s also some edge banding and trim needed.

That said, which dimensions would you need?

The sink countertop is simply a rectangle with an oval hole cut into it, with a drop-in sink mounted to the Formica countertop. Pretty much 1985 materials technology.

Thinking about it, if you have the opportunity to redesign the bulkheads with a more open plan. Widen the openings and let more air and light through.

You might just opt to provide a portapotty and you could eliminate the head sink - some folks have replaced this section with a full-height hanging locker.

You still need a substantial piece of plywood to bolt the upper shrouds chainplates to, so you cannot eliminate them completely.
