More importantly, where the wire attaches to the mast there should be a fitting with a pair of ...

Protecting Steel underwater.

I have just removed all the old antifouling and epoxy from my bilge keels. Or at least my crew has and I helped! After 15 year of patching up every season I thought it time to strip it all off and start again. Imagine my surprise to find the Galvanising as good as the day we first coated it, about 1...

Hello there? What size Stuart do you have in it at the moment? I can imagine it could be either a 4 or an 8 (5 or 10)! The little single was only just man enough in a calm and I would have thought an 8 or 9 hp replacement would be the most suitable, depending on how much room you have without magor ...

He believes she is somewhere on the upper Thames, but is not certain.. She is now in Northern Ireland undergoing a refit. How apt thet one of the most famous ...

Hello Paul, never worked on a Senior that way, but I have added a skeg to a Lysander with good results, years ago. The boat tended to tilt back on it's keels if you put too much weight aft, so the owner asked me to help. We made up a galvanised Steel skeg, through bolted under the stern, just in fro...
