Re: Looking to buy a Careel

Sorry to correct you Max but, the difference in headroom between the Mk's in C18 does not equal 6". Basically, the headroom difference between a Mk1 to a Mk3 equals 4" or 100mm. As I understand this came about by the hull being increaed by 2" or 50mm in gunwale height from the Mk1 to ...

Re: Recommendations on boat builders familiar with keel pin repair?

Andy, there could be a number of things going on there as has been mentioned & you'll have to be a bit methodical in searching out the problem/s. Sounds like this is certainly a bit more than the common Mk1 splash out of the top front cable/rope hole in the case for the keel system. I'd also be ...
