      !. A padeye screws into the threads and a block is attached to that padeye.
      If you can find a screwin padeye I;m sure the rest is easy
      2. There is a stuffing box at the stock entrance. It may be leaking there.
      I had a slight leak not from the stuffing but where the box itself had
      worked loose from the hull. I thghtened up those 4 nuts and its fine not.
      Just don't tighten those bolts too much as you may pull them from the rudder
      skeg.

      BTW I got no reply from Cherryl either. I will have to fabricate a flap to
      cover one of my secondary cockpit scuppers and also make new hull zincs.
      Denice, you have alrady done the latter. How hard was it?
