Re: Whitby 25 Folkboat Hull with Exposed Ballast

Some more folkboat pictures if they help.

This boat was in our family from new in 1969 until 1998. Carvel built, 4 berth with a Volvo diesel later changed to a Yanmar.

She was built in Hungary and put on a train and sent to the UK to be finished off. The quality of the wood and woodwork done in Hungary was excellent, the UK work less so and we re built most of it later

The following link I found is of extensive refit done by a subsequent owner

Tim Gilmore Ltd. - William Blyth

Re: Whitby 25 Folkboat Hull with Exposed Ballast

Thanks for the images. It is helpful but it's difficult to enlarge this enough to see the upper gudgeon. It appears to have only a hole and no pintle. On my boat the hull gudgeons are exactly the same, but the upper one that is above water has a fixed pin in it. I'm assuming your rudder has all three pintles attached -- can you tell if the pins were welded or molded as all one piece or held in with a screw? I am having some difficulty figuring this out as one pintle is completely broken off and I'm left with a gudgeon (lowest one on rudder). The middle one seems to be broken off -- hence my confusion.
Thanks
Kea

Re: Whitby 25 Folkboat Hull with Exposed Ballast

Hello


you are correct just the hole on the upper


the pintles are all one piece and screwed to the rudder


I copied a link in my response. It is for Rig Rite who have many versions gudgeons and pintles available in stainless at a reasonable price. Check them out in might be the “path of least resistance” for you on replacements. They are a bitch to get hold of ..fair warning. I think you mentioned you are in BC. If you contact Rekford Marine they can probably help you out.


I have a spare pintle and gudgeon in bronze …if you can’t sort it out let me know and I dig it out and will send you a photo.


Curious what hull number do you have mine is 28





Cheers


Rich

Re: Whitby 25 Folkboat Hull with Exposed Ballast

Thank you. I may well need a pintle and gudgeon in bronze. Mine are bronze, and I suspect the original. It would appear, from a previous photo of yours, that my rudder is significantly different, but gudgeon and pintles could be the same.
I may end up taking the whole rudder into a foundry in Victoria and having them fix it, if possible. There's nothing wrong with the pintles that are mounted to the hull. The bronze pintles & gudgeons on rudder are not screwed in, but pinned and welded from what I can tell. There's no way I can get them off without breaking the rudder and it's in good shape.
I believe my hull is # 42. That's what the original foresail has on it. Built 1970.
It was trailered out from Ontario in the early 80s.
Your transom mount is also significantly different!
