headlining/maintenance

Have a look at some of the plastic/rubber edging used in kit car builds.

keel winding gear

just read the e mails having returned from sunny Greece, I have fitted a modified winch rather than the winding gear.

Hatch leak

Hi, Are you are sure that you have re-sealed the seating for the hatch onto the deck,and the hatch lid .? If so , you might want to consider that water is coming in from another area, and tracking down to the hatch.? Both the hatch garage screws and the tabernackle bolts(mast mount) are fixed above ...
