Re: Stain or varnish tiller?

Hi Roger

Sorry to jump in the thread, I have exactly the same scenario with my tiller and am planning to strip and revarnish as you describe.

Could I ask which varnish you're going to use?

How long between coats? Should it get a light sanding between?

Thanks

William

Fulmar Reading light

Hi 20160222_165238.jpg One of my reading lights has a stripped thread where it screws into the fitting. Both parts of the threaded component are plastic and despite my best attempts I cannot get the light to stay up. So Im wondering if any members have experienced this or might there be some parts a...

Re: gosport - st vaast or similar

Yes, I am glad we didn't go in the end and wise words, many thanks. Sometimes, I am not too keen on the sheer hustle and bustle of the Solent though, it can seem a long way from the idea of sailing as a relaxing and tranquil pastime.

gosport - st vaast or similar

Hello All We were planning a trip this bank holiday but are likely to cancel due to the forecast rain and headwinds later in the day on Saturday. Am I being too cautious? Boat is in tip top condition with all safety gear, radar, AIS liferaft etc. Three crew planned, one on first trip, one inexperien...

Re: Fulmar handrail removal

And yes it did seem strange that only one was glassed over, but I was very pleased it was only one. No problems getting the nuts and washers off though I left the washer in place for the glassed in one.

Fulmar handrail removal

Hi I have removed the five nuts from inside the cabin, one of which was glassed over, curiously. So I thought it would then just be a question of hopping up on deck and lifting the rail off. Sadly its not budging. Anyone done this? Do I have to drill the teak plugs and unscrew from the outside? Than...

Fulmar stanchion base

Hello All I need to replace the base of the foremost port stanchion on my 89 Fulmar. I have a replacement from Trafalgar which appears, identical so I am hoping its a case of unscrew, remove replace. I read another thread which goes into some detail for a centaur and thanks to all for that. I just w...

Re: Ageing a Fulmar

Thanks to all who responded on this. As a postscript, the MCA returned my SSR cert without what I assumed to be my hull number (L185). This is apparently not the official international 14 digit number which manufacturers applied as from the, early 90s. I do understand this to be the Westerly identif...

Re: Fulmar exhaust hose size

Thanks for that. Seems to agree with 50mm external. Do you reckon 2meters is enough?

Re: Fulmar exhaust hose size

Hello Roger

Thanks for that. I assume thats the external diameter? Do you happen to have an idea of the length?

Thanks
