do you mean the spray rails?  on the marauder they are an integral feature of the design (apparently) and Peter Milne was renowned for them, so they will be staying on.
the same, but different...

It was a rule change in the mid/late 90's. Some suggest it improves tacking speed, you can also do away with the keelband holding the slot gasket and go for a glued one if you so desire. Really you have to ask yourself why leave them on...  

When we did it to my Cheshire Cat it involved a friend and an electric plane (while watching out for screws and nails.

The concern is whether the keels are structural in any way. Hopefully your question on the class forum will answer that. I would have thought the bilge keels wouldn't be, but the centre keel might require consideration.

KFZ I have just heard of someone breaking an oldish GP for parts in Wiltshire. I can forward you his email if you are interested. Its near me so I can go and look if you want.
Also the cvrda travelling members often ship parts around the country on their travels.

That includes us and we do the Wiltshire - North Staffordshire run about every six weeks if car-sized things such as sails, rudders, centreboards etc need shipping.

13.11.2010

Centreboard case dissembled, and the varnish, paint, glassfibre and epoxy mixture removed. . Main problems

  • One side has two large splits in the wood running nearly the whole length of the case

  • Its forward end is soaking wet

  • Damp has got inside the case and split the sides apart

  • Lots and lots of wood damage, screws have pulled out or the wood is so split it needs removing

  • Its full of holes and splits from fittings long since gone

  • The top caps are so badly split rotten and damaged there write offs.

  • Both side mortises are badly eroded and lost all shape

  • The aft location tenon is missing.

If this was any other boat or it was a refit with no respect of historical reasons then It would be a lot easer to just source a replacement case.


 

17.11.2010

Centreboard case cracks routed out and filled with epoxy.  Bit bodgy but should be good strong enough to hold

I have to be honest that I had zero interest in this until I started reading.
