      Well i'm over the shock , I'm going to haul and replace my strut  found a boat yard  found a prop shop that does struts also . press fits the bearings in and all . bought the Trindad  / SR  yeaterday  78%  poison !   I'll fine line tape the water line and most likely move it up again  just in the stern..
       I just need some marine Bondo stuff and I'm set .
       I'm going to put one of those new fangled transducers that measures speed , water temp and depth all in one unit with ZERO moving parts. !!!  In place of the speed paddle wheel !!  I figure 1 week on the hard..  We will see .  best laid plans deal..  LEE/ fla

      Jack, sorry to here about your strut dilemma.  Wouldn't you have to haul regardless to replace the strut?  So, I would think you could do a short haul, remove the strut and hand it over to a fabricator who can then produce an exact copy.  Then you can install the new one while your on the hard?  I don't see an alternative.  Dan

      GUYS , I'm in a real bind here, my strut needs replacing, Glen has none and none can say  es we have one with no measurements !!  Does any one still have a Sabre 28 out of the water ? I would like a picture  digital and as much information as your willing to give me.
       To get the info I need to haul the boat remove the strut and pay land yard fees while I find and decide.
       I'm trying limit my cost here, I took a bath in the market like we all have ! and this kind of money just is not there anymore, so most likely this will be borrowed money !!  Yeah I'm not happy  , but boats are boats..   Any help would be appreciated. .   Thank you Lee/ Tampa bay  Fla

      Lee -
      Since it's going into salt water, ask for 316 stainless instead of 304.

      I would think the fabricator pretty much would need to have the old strut in order to reproduce another one exactly.

      Subject: [SabreSailboat] anyone north of boston have any spare black ablative paint?

      I finished painting the bottom today but am bone dry on paint. I'll need to touch up under the pads and bottom of the keel when she launches. If anyone can spare a pint or less of black ablative paint please let me know
