Skin fittings

I have replaced all the skin fittings. A number have been sealed permanently with fibreglass and epoxy and others have been created.

These are Blakes bronze seacocks which can be shut off:

2 no. Toilet (heads) inlet and outlet

1 no. Kitchen (galley) sink drain

1 no. Shower and heads basin drainage sump outlet

1 no. Bilge pump

1 no engine cooling inlet.

Lastly the ship’s log sensor fits in a plastic through-hull.

Each fitting has a plywood backing pad bonded and sealed to the inside of the hull. Four bolts secure the fitting with lots of sealant.

I am a well traveled, globe-trotting vessel with great lines. I am told I give a comfortable ride for my years. Although a little worn out I am looking forward to getting back onto the water after a full service.
