    The Wayfarer Dinghy Group on facebook is very active and a lot of members use it.

    I’d recommend it as a great place to get advice on all things Wayfarer related.

    Thanks Bob, I’ll have a read of the manual.

    Thanks John.  I have contacted Ian Porter and he can supply them.

    They are nearly £1o each though, so I will try soaking the current ones in diesel to see if that frees them up.  Fingers crossed.

    I also have to replace the seal for the rear hatch of my plus s (incidentally the seal is stuck to the hull rather than hatch).

    Can anyone recommend what to use to remove the old seal, adhesive etc…..I’m having trouble getting it all off, is there a substance that will help to remove it all?

    I can recommend Wonder Wipes (Toolstation sell them), for getting rid of unwanted Sikaflex….it is very sticky stuff and tends to get everywhere!

    Thanks Bob, great info and very helpful.  I think I will now also include woodies in my search for a boat.

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for your reply, it’s very helpful.

    The World sounds great for daysailing but I really would like to be able to camp on board so I am thinking perhaps I should wait for a suitable mk1 or mk2.

    How are you finding the woodie?  I do love the look of the wooden boats, but the maintenance concerns me somewhat.  There is an epoxy coated one for sale locally, does this mean the maintenance required is greatly reduced?

    Thanks

    Adam
