help with centerboard on oday daysailer 2

Hi,
I have the well known centerboard leak and saw this post on one of the forums and would like a bit more information before I try it. This is the post:

I've done that fix
by Roger Ľ Fri Mar 23, 2007 6:48 pm

I used a 3/4" metal pipe that I cut lengthwise into with a hacksaw to make a "hole threader". I then went to the hardware and bought a 1" long ABS plastic threated nipple with a nut fitting on the other end. (about $2) and capped that with a 1/2" end cap with a 1/8" inch hole in the end for the wire. I think it is used to couple a threaded pipe to a slip fit pipe. It stops all water from coming in to the cuddy. A simple threaded nipple would likely do the job also. About an inch long. The gap between the two fg hulls is only about 3/8" at the most, the thickness of each hull is 1/4" at most, so a total nipple length of 1" is really all you need. I liked the nut idea because it allow me to use a wrench to install it. Too simple!

Now for my questions:
I think the "hole threader" is used to insert 3/4 inch pipe into the donut facing the cuddy cabin after removing the donut. This would be the raise centerboard pendant thru hole in the diagram. Once it is inserted around the wire do you thread 3/4 inch pipe into the hull/centerboard trunk to stop the water from splashing in? I am not sure what the 1 inch long abs plastic threaded nipple does. Does it go over the 3/4 pipe to seal up the cut made in the pipe?
Does any of this require epoxy to glue it in place?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

I think the 3/4" metal pipe is only used temporarily to cut threads in the hole. Then you remove the metal pipe and thread in the ABS nipple with the end cap on it. That's what remains in the hole, and your wire comes thru the 1/8" hole in the cap.
