According to Mike (migot):
“all these boats must go through this treatment every 8 years, the keel is made of cast iron , and no paint
will hold on for so long . the keel will begine to move and bang sideways...not a nice feeling, and the cevlar-pannents held on just so long. there is a SOUTHERLY OWNERS ASSOCIATION in ENGLAND-they have a lot of stuf regarding this maintenance
. also JOHN WHARN at NORTHSHORE UK allways helped us with kind advice, and fast delivery
of spare parts
...bless him! you can reach him via internet-try NORTHSORE UK.
