Repairing the skeg

E-mail Print PDF

It would appear that the both skeg and rudder on our Leisure 22 have both been damaged at some point. When we checked the skeg after taking the boat out the water we noticed there was rather a lot of movement in the skeg.

Stripping the paint off the hull ready for repainting

E-mail Print PDF

When we first viewed the boat we quickly decided that if we purchased her we would have to have her repainted, as her existing paint was looking rather tired and somewhat the worse for wear.

The process of removing all the old paint and preparing the hull to be repainted proved a much slower process than we originally expected. We had originally hoped to strip off all the old paint over two or three weekends, but the work actually required about two weeks work over the course of a two month period in order to remove all the old paint.

Repairing the mast foot

At some point in the past, from talking to folks from the Leisure Owners Association it seems the mast foot and step were replaced or modified. Mast foot, looking from the starboard side

Repairing the rudder

It would appear that the both skeg and rudder on our Leisure 22 have both been damaged at some point. The fiberglass of the rudder had then been repaired badly but no attempt appears to have been made to fix the skeg.

Before we even stripped off the antifouling, we could see that there was some damage to the rudder at the top and bottom which had been repaired in the past.
