Re: Helms 25 Centerboard restoration
Very nice job! How did it sail? Did you happen to weight it before you installed it? Wondering how close to the original 300# it ended up.
Was the pin stainless in those early years or bronze or something else?
Did the pin ride in the fiberglass of the trunk or were there some type of bushings for the pin? What was the diameter of the pin? Was it hard to get it out?
Sorry for all the questions, but I never had to remove mine yet.
