Re: Lone Gull Moulds.

I made a mould when I built my Senior in 1991/2.
I last saw it (the mould) in 1995 in Wigan Lancashire., I would think by now that it has been scrapped, there must have been an Eventide mould at some time or another as there are some G.R.P. Eventides about.

Re: Building a new Eventide

I wonder if there are any Eventides or Riptides more than five years old? Hmm. That really begs the question, Are there any Eventides or Riptides LESS than 5 years old? BTW - Doesn't time fly when you are not watching it? I just realised that my self built senior is 20 years old next year! :shock:

I thought that was to do with the VAT rather than seaworthyness? :lol:

Re: Anodes on GH hull

I think if you earth all the keelbolts together or fit a seperate dedicated earth bolt to each keel (to both bilge keels and the ballast keel if it is not encapsulated and is exposed to sea water ) Then with an earthing strap you can lead out to anything else that needs connecting, such as the motor...

Re: Anodes on GH hull

Personally I would fit an anode to each of the metal bilge keels (as well as the prop & rudder) you may then be able to earth everything to the bilge keels,
& then fill the original holes as suggested by Chris. :D
