Re: Cal 31

Was on the hard in early December. In addition to bottom paint had some repairs made to the rudder and replaced some plastic though-hulls with bronze. The rudder needed repair because I forgot to secure the tiller in Avalon one night and a surge came into the moorings. The rudder banged against the stops several times before I woke up and secured it. I replaced the through-hulls because I had seen one fall apart when an owner tried to replace a hose. Sun/UV had made the plastic part so brittle it just came apart in his hand. These are the auto and manual bilge pump discharges and are normally above the waterline and so exposed.
