    Hi all,
    Is it possible to retro fit a removable extended outboard bracket on our Moores Mk 2 GRP. The aftmost compartment behing the tank is inaccessible and has a large bouyancy block in it. Any thoughts appreciated

    Phone Porters (Emsworth nr Chichester) if you get no joy here. Not too far if you are in the New Forest. Dave

    Our boat had a similar block in the rear tank, but the was a gap between the transom and the block, so I taped a steel rule to a spanner and held the nut in the spanner with some blue tack and with some help managed fish this up behind the block and screw the bolt onto the nut, once nut was tight, the spanner could be pulled off.

    Thanks both. Spanner/steel rule option v. difficult in my boat, no room below block to get to transom. have had tip locally to use a long hole borer from the rear, and drill a tube through transom, foam block and inner GRP wall, then use socket on extension to hold the nut from inside. Subject to confirmation with local W owner and boat builder I have found, this looks favourite. Many thanks. David
