Thumbs up Old time Flying Tern owner

I too am glad this very old posting was around. My family has a Tern that we bought used and have been sailing it each summer for 43 years. This is how I leaned to sail.

It is as quick now as it ever was. Have replaced the mast and sails but hull is in good shape (having repaired the hole from the hurricane some 20 yrs back).

I believe it is hull "918" which is branded into the underside of the hiking stick.

I have two questions -
1) The center board bolt (not a pin) has been rusting for years - but it is time to replace. Any advise for this thru hull bolt?

2) I also need to replace the bung covers for the seats/floatation tanks. They basically still work but starting to rot.

Happy Flying Tern owner on a lake in SE Connecticut.
