Helms 25 centerboard bolt.
- I'm picking up my Helms 25 on the 28th and need some information about
the centerboard hinge bolt so I can evaluate the one on this boat.
I saw an access panel to this area on the Helms 25 I sailed. Is this a
water tight panel? Is it above the waterline? What bearing does the
bolt have in this centerboard pocket? Does the bearing surface and or
bolt wear? If so, how is it properly repaired? Is the bolt stainless?
I would appreciate as much information as possible on this section of
