  1. Would anyone have some advice on a repair for my rudder blade? Would prefer to just repair the few areas of damage and not have to do the whole blade? Cheers.
  2. I like your enthusiasm BK but long haul not an option, islands or East Coast of Oz.
  3. Thanks BK. Yes I have heard and read that a lot of the boats in Tonga are pretty average.
  4. Yeah happy to consider all options. The reason I was looking Fiji/Tonga is because we are very keen on diving/snorkelling and I know the diving in the islands is very good as I have dived there. My understanding is that the Whitsundays is very nice to sail etc but does not offer the same qualities beneath the surface?
  5. Does anyone have any experience with bareboat yacht charters in the Islands, Fiji, Tonga etc? I have researched a few and it seems there are certainly some that you need two be a bit wary of but would be good to know if anyone has had some really good experiences and would recommend a particular company? Got my 50th in 2022 and if the islands are open would love to do a trip with the family.
  6. You have had success with this method Sail Rock? Currently in the process of doing the first track at the moment using Sika 291. Cheers.
  7. Thanks MCP. Is someone able to briefly explain how I would go about using Butyl tape on an application such as the sheet track pictured above?
  8. Cheers. I understand the concept of counter sinking however in this case I am not sure as the current holes 'just' fit inside the two rails that sit on the deck. Any countersink would put the diameter outside the rails and into open deck, if that makes sense?
  9. Thanks Fish, if you could get the Sika number that would be great, may as well give myself the best chance of success, don't want to be doing it a 3rd time!!!
  10. This is the shape of the track, not flat on the bottom so makes it a little difficult to seal.
  11. Ok sounds good thanks Fish. I am using Mastersil SMP 50, should be ok?
  12. Yes I get that answer a lot but I can't source the stuff here in NZ!
  13. Has anyone ever successfully sealed one of these tracks? Both of mine are leaking through into the cabin. Planning on first sail in a few weeks but I can't for the life of me stop water getting into this boat (rain that is)!!!
  14. Looking at using this product for teak toe rails. Was looking at the Cetol Filter 7 Plus but it states this should be used as a top coat over Cetol HLSe? Are both necessary or could I just do 3 coats of HLSe? Any advice appreciated.
  15. I have attached some before and after photos of my window replacement incase anyone is interested. Once again I appreciate all the great advice I got from this forum which was a big part of the job going well. Really pleased with the result, it was a very rewarding experience
