Admittedly, it's not the best, but he did recondition it. The real advantage that he will have over those with better hardware installed by a yard crew is that he will be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of all he has and will be obseving. Knowing your boat and what you have is a great advantage.
Exactly, this was all done first thing after buying
that boat. We were leaving for Florida
from South Carolina and I did not want to be underway with one bilge pump
and an already leaking through hull
. The plan was the replace the whole assembly while in the boat yard in florida
while doing the bottom job. I will be posting
that article and pictures with it as soon as my twins let me.
