New Thru-Hulls for the Endeavour 37....

I'm trying to stay busy so went back to documenting work Ruth and I did on the boat the last time we were there.

When we bought the Endeavour we knew it was in the need of new thru-hulls so tackled that job and documented it. If if wasn't for Maine Sail's great writeup on how to go about this....

... we probably would of had someone else do the work. It took time but wasn't as bad as I thought it would be in some ways.

If you are in the need of this read his writeup and then between that and what we did you will have a good idea what is involved. I have 3 pages of pictures and info here....

Here are a few pictures with lots more at the link above...

Re: New Thru-Hulls for the Endeavour 37....

Nice job and well documented! The only thing I would have done different would be to use the Groco pre-made backing plates. They would have saved you some time and eliminated the three screw holes through the hull on each fitting. Might have saved you from some itching as well. I hate cutting and drilling fiberglass.

Those are nice. I'd seen were some had threaded a backing plate and put a stud in it but didn't exactly like that approach. I do like the inserts on those and probably would of spent the extra dollars for them had I'd been aware of them at the time,
