Baba 30' GRP/Teak Cutter


Rust stains on the inside and outside required an investigation of what was going on in one of the most inaccessible areas of the boat.

In the end, 4 new bolts were put into the backstay chain plate and peace of mind was reinstated.

Self steering gear removed

backstay chainplate removed

2 of 4 backstay bolts not looking healthy

inside, quite a mess

rust and possible rot!

after cutting back the surplus grp, everything turns out to be ok

Now only the impossible bobstay fixing bolts was left to be checked
