As a used Romilly owner I would like to discuss maintaining and surveying my Romilly for maintenance and wear. Ry12 built by Bridgend in 1997 shows wear consistent with the years.
Carbon fibre mast foot epoxy base cap cracks in the joint between carbon and epoxy.
Flex points at foot show paint flex shear.
Shackle knuckle at mast head from slight pin wear, and bronze mast head fitting wear at shackle.
Bumpkin cap joint between carbon and epoxy.
All loose bolt cleats at tie down points (single nut).
Rudder gudgeon wiggle and wear at lower joint.
Teak to bow caulking.
Worn rotational mast base lock pins at foot to hull union (main and bumpkin).
Fibre-glass joint between seats and cabin.
Overall the boat is wicked awesome, gurt lush, beautifully built and a joy.
Trailer – well, everything is worn.
What are your experiences and remidies?
