I've recently purchase
a 2005 Porta-Bote 12' in really good shape. However, the PO installed a drain through the transom. (see pic) He was using the boat
as a lake fishing boat
with no plans to ever fold it, whereas I will be folding it and hanging it on stanchions as my tender
I have the feeling I'll need to relocate and patch the existing drain since it will be problematic to seal it effectively every time I unfold the boat.
Does anyone have any good suggestions on patching the polypropylene transom?
I have also been downloading and compiling manuals
on all the equipment
that's currently on the boat, a 1959 New Horizons. One item I've had no luck finding a manual for is a Navico
Tiller Pilot 1800. I've found manuals
for a 1600 and 2500, but these have a compass
, and my 1800 does not, so I doubt the manuals are the same.
Last item, does anyone have a source on replacement mast
boots? I've looked online, but I can't find one that fits my mast
shape. (see Pic)
