buying a older boat

Postby bristollad » Tue Oct 23, 2012 3:24 pm

For anyone buying a older boat make sure you have a look at the spinnaker throat bolts under the gunhaul as i never and have now found out after the second sail on my boat that on the port side the bolts have almost pulled through due to the rig tension on the newer boats they have updated this problem by have 5 bolts each side and not 4 so now i have got to take them all out epoxy all the holes and over size the bolts grrrrrr so make sure you check them guys :) apart from that all going great :D

Jason,

That is a good tip, with any 10 year old high performance dinghy there is going to be some wear.

Having recently been through the process would you be willing to add your guides and experiences here:
