I don't have the facilities to fabricate metal at home and it would be a large outlay to buy the tools to undertake the work. I have requested quotes for 2x chainplates, 2x keels and 2x keel runners from FabTech, AJ engineering and Stainless Marine Fabrications to give me an idea of cost.

Quest just about has all the fittings removed apart from her keels. I have also been sourcing parts and today I picked up some reclaimed Burmese teak from Lincolnshire Wood Supplies in Stamford, the owner was very helpful and machined the wood to my specification.
