    I have a WayFarer World from Porters.
    i am thinking of trying a ‘Total’ centre main as described in the forum sometime ago.
    I have the details but unsure about fixing the padeye just anterior to main swivel.
    I have drilled a test hole in the top of the centreboard casing about 5in in front of swivel but it is only a few mm thick.
    Is there strengthening around the swivel?
    How far forward does it extend?
    How is the swivel fixed? just by self tapping screws!
    I intended to epoxy a half inch ply base to the GRP and self tap the padeye to this using 6mm screws going through the ply and GRP.
    grateful if anyone can advise

    Ian Porter would know the answers im sure as he made the boats.
