    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
    regards
