Re: Pentland rudder removal

Hi Ian,
I own a Pentland called Walkabout (PD222) and the rudder was dropped to upgrade my shaft. The boatyard done the work for me...So I know a man who will know how to do it. Am willing to ask if you haven't already completed the task.
Regards

Re: Pentland Osmosis problem ???

Hi Steve, I had the same problem on my Pentland(1979) but on my coach roof (in small patches but not all over), I think it was due to the heat over the years. The way I went about it was; I purchased a DREMEL Drill with the little grinding bits. The bits are small enough to get into each blister, I ...

Re: Centaur - crack near window

Hi Chris, This is a very common problem, does your 'inner' baby stay rigging come to the top of the coach roof next to the windows?
