Missing Engine Plug

roger.shorter says:

Hi everybody Norman suggested that I post here.
New to the forum not so new to the Achilles 24 been crewing a triple keeler for about 15 years out of Tenby
My mate is looking for a fin keeler we think we have found one; but the engine blanking plug is missing. Does anybody know of a spare one anywhere that we could buy. Any old Achelles beyond repair/being brokenup; god forbid.
Or does anybody have any suggestions on how to make one from scratch; has anybody done it; how did it go.
Any informatiion would be much appreciated

Yes Malcolm, there are lots. Just search for plug in this group's pool. To do this enter 'plug' in the box at the top right of the screen and then click the down arrow alongside the word search and click on this group's pool.
Good luck.

Roger,
I understand from Jeff that you are concerned about keel hull joints. Have a look at the following, if you haven't already discovered them. It is a comprehensive coverage of keels and keel bolts and thier removal etc. Start another discussion if you want I am sure there are many who will join in.
