Also ...... forgot to ask.

A quick howto to remove the rudder. A plastic 5 mil bush between the top of the rudder and the hull has disintegrated so will need to drop the whole lot to replace because I will have to slide it over the stock.

Have a look through my photostream and you'll see photos of Helm's Deep's pintle. She is No.64.

I have always found that with triple keels 2.5 litres gives one good coat with enough left over to put an additional coat from the water line down about 2ft. Applied with roller and brush in difficult areas.

I saw those pics of the Mercedes Ron, I had a 1964 220Sb fintail for neigh on 10 years when I lived down in Brazil, the love of my life, used to drive 650kms a day when touring. I have hundreds of them in my photo set I'm embarrassed to say! The first one, white/greyish registration BIC1964 was mine. I'll get another when I retire and go touring Scandanavia and the Baltics.
