Hi Wayne,

Thanks for the detailed info. Am I able to remove the stainless steel plates without the centerboard from falling? I'm almost certain that both sides are leaking but I'm not certain that is the only leak.

For the rudder, I don't know about the washers. I'll take a look tonight after work. I think the bolt is too tight and will try loosening it a little bit. I just need enough that I'm not fighting to lower and raise the rudder. At this point, that is the hardest effort needed when I take out the boat.

One last question: what is the size of the mast on the Helms 25?

Thanks very much!
