Got me there. I assumed they wouldn't attach the bottom of the rudder to a bolted on keel (not to mention how many bolts it would take for a keel that long) but you never know. I do stand that it looks integral 'to me'.

Re: Help Replacing Cabin Liners

A friend of mine built his liner out of shaped squares of 3/4" pink board with vinyl headliner shaped and glued to it.. these were then velcroed to the ceiling. The velcro was epoxy glued to fairing strips. It looks VERY nice and now all he has to do to service stuff in the ceiling is to pull a panel off.

This is a 56' boat he built himself out of trees he felled himself in alaska 20 years ago. Its a one of a kind monster boat.

Nearly 500 posts and I finally got something right. Congrats on the new boat and have fun sailing her.

Re: Help Replacing Cabin Liners

Does anyone have any insight on replacing the gaskets in the portlights? I'm looking at a WEFCO rubber gasket that appears to be 3/8 by 3/4 as pictured. This seems right but I don't have any samples available to test so I will be buying a roll of 50 feet sight unseen and crossing my fingers unless anyone has a better suggestion.

Help Replacing Cabin Liners

In my case I found removing the gasket, cleaning the frame so it was clean and remounting the gasket solved the gasket issue.

If you still have leaks after that look at the portlight lens. In my case after 34 years the lens was not true. It had developed a groove where the gasket contacted it. For +/- $40 a port I got new lenses.

Not sure what brand ports Grampian used but Tartan used Beckson. Beckson is still in business and a good source for parts.

Ah, I have a Rafiki 35 now, I didn't realize my profile had Grampian in it. I have no clue what kind of portlights these are, so I am kinda trying blindly. I found something i THINK will fit but I'm not sure, and there's no way to get a small sample. My existing gaskets are destroyed. Rock hard, compressed beyond all reason, crumbly, dead.

Re: Help Replacing Cabin Liners

Send a sample of your old gasket to Wefco. They will match it.

Re: Help Replacing Cabin Liners

You think they can extrapolate from smashed old rotten gaskets? That would
Be brilliant.
