  1. You could try Grant Barker he is an excellent boat builder 021 270 17672
  2. Cav keels were drilled holes for the bolts with slots melted out with gas axe for bottom nuts and washers. Pretty sure bolts are monel and very unlikely to fail. Peter Smith at Rocna can confirm and would be worth contacting.

  8. This is interesting to follow - started 2 weeks ago. Graham Dalton was an entrant but had to withdraw at the last minute. https://goldengloberace.com/news/ https://www.facebook.com/goldengloberace/ https://goldengloberace.com/live-tracker/
  9. Deck / hull joint is epoxy and stainless bolts under the teak toe rail. The deck has an upturned lip to meet the hull. The lip has the bolts through it. Long time ago but something like 1/4in machine screws at say 150 centres. The toe rail covers the bolts and is constructed of three pieces of teak. One piece on the deck lip, one piece on the hull and a thicker capping piece on the top. The deck and hull are also bonded together inside the boat with approximately 400 wide chopped strand mat and polyester.
  10. We built Confererate from hull and decks and installed a Yanmar single cylinder YSE12 12hp with a briski folding prop. it was useless upwind in a breeze - only do about 3knots in those conditions. Really needed around 15 - 20 hp. I guess fixed prop may have been better but sailing performance would have suffered.
  11. Most of them were the shorter rig to fit the half ton rating. Definitely underpowered in the light but it did make them very good upwind in a breeze. Our boat - Confederate also did a circumnavigation with a later owner.
  12. I used that pourable sika product, can't remember the name and it worked for a while then started leaking so I slightly thickened some epoxy and poured on top - that worked. I think the sika didn't get right around the back of the cable tube.
