loss of our Webmaster

We are very sad to announce the sudden death, at the age of just 46, of our Webmaster Peter. In an effort to support his wife Kirsty, I have arranged with her that we can make donations to his old PayPal address, she can collect it from there. Anyone with a PayPal account can simply open their acco...

Re: Scoter wild duck 19

Well Found James! I suspect you may also have gas aboard, so can I suggest a simple gas detector fitted that will protect you if there are any fuel or gas leaks! I have a diesel motor but use gas and have a gas detector... better safe than.... Send more pics in or your Restorers page when you do mor...

Re: Scoter wild duck 19

Hello James

See you are determined to go Stuart Turner! Hope it runs sweetly! Check there is no play in the flywheel end of the crankshaft to indicate worn bearing and thus duff crank case seal!

Good luck fitting it and making it safe!

Regards,
John

Re: Scoter wild duck 19

Hello James, sorry no one has responded, but to be honest we had never heard of one ever being made in GRP so it was a very long shot finding anyone on here. I can only surmise she was made as a one off, either by someone in the GRP moulding business for their own use or by an enthuiastic amatuer. H...

Re: Marine plywood for repair of Dougal Jo

Hope by now you have managed to souce a supply, if so, let us know on here as others may still be searching.

Robbins in Brisol area? were always a good bet, but exspensive. Brunzeel ply one of the best but thier Essex depot gone now I think.

good luck.

Re: gh or eventide Yankee/Jib on a bowsprit

All those sail makers have been around since Noah, so have stood the test of time!

You pays your money and takes your choice.

If the sail is on a roller reefing, the additional foam in the luff is a good idea, will make it set better reefed.

Good luck,
John

Re: Barbican 33 Centre plate

Hello Buzzard, There is a case for doing away with it, but it will make turning in marinas and the like more difficult if you have not got the plate there to pivot around. Some owners have neatly got round this by installing a small bow thruster, then marinas etc a doddle. The later commercial build...

Re: Plywood supplier please...

Sorry no one answered you back in April..

Did you find a good source?

Good marine ply at a decent price is difficult to find anywhere these days.

How is the restoration going?

Last I heard from you it was about moving your big boat to this neck of the woods to be nearer to the WW.

Regards,
John

Re: GH31 bad leak: quarter berth, from cockpit...somewhere

Great to hear you are on top of it and yes the time to repair rot is of course as soon as you find it! I always advise cutting out a few inches further than you think it has travelled, to be sure. Epoxy and decent ply and hardwoods every time, this is a job you just do not want to be doing again! We...

Re: GH31 bad leak: quarter berth, from cockpit...somewhere

I built my Eventide under such a tent! It was 30 x 15 and all made from scrap floorboards into frames and the frames lashed together with string and spaced apart with battens, lasted 5 years. Several layers of tarp, as they rotted through! Got so hot inside I had to cut vents in it! Good luck drying...

Re: GH31 bad leak: quarter berth, from cockpit...somewhere

I agree with your local guru! I have just stripped a couple of hatches off a friends Eventide, they had strips of teak and Sikaflex, but screwed down! i have stripped the lot off and tossed it, repaired the water damage to the timber underneath with epoxy and then epoxied a Treadmaster mat on top, n...

Re: GH31 - plans for bilge plates ?

We have a member here Nick, who has a GH 31 that lost one bilge keel. (It is still at the bottom of a nearby creek!) I have suggested he measure the remaining one up then take a photo and put the measurements on it for you and anyone else wanting to replace a keel, or two! Hopefully Nick will get ba...

Re: GH31 - plans for bilge plates ?

Hello Matt I will pass this on to Mark, but I can add my three pennies worth too. The bilge keels are best galvanised, then they can be later epoxy coated. Sure someone is galvanising in N.Z. Not expensive but the best protection…. Mine have survived 28 years this way and when I stripped the epoxy o...
