The keel is also here if you need to measure this up as well.

I am just about to start the restoration of my Domino Six.
My father and I built it as a kit about 40 years ago.
It has been stored in attics for the past 30 years so I am about to give it a new lease of life.
The original Mercury engine is still with it and in mint condition and just been fully serviced. It now runs sweet as a nut!

The floor boards and transom are sound but need a quick re-vanish.

Apart from the keel (which leaks like mad) all the tubes are intact and leak free. Unfortunately the same can not be said for the valves.
Two out of the four valves are shot. The other two leak slowly.

I would like to keep the original valves to maintain the integrity of the restoration.

Question:
Has anyone out there got any ideas of how to obtain spare seals for the original valves?

Hi Colin

Thanks for the reply.
Yep re Polymarine, I will give them a call this week. In fact I may take it over to them to look at as i have now found a couple of leaks on one tube.

Yes the keel is an inflatable one and in need of repair.

This boat is a 10 foot version

Sorry but not on Whatsapp.
Send your mobile number I can send you a text message with photo?

I see you are in Manchester. We are Sheff 17 only 40mins away over the Snake. Why don't you pop over and measure them up? This would be best to ensure you have the correct sizes etc.

If this keel is beyond repair I will get a quote from Polymarine to make a new one, I can ask for a price for two if you like.

Cheers my number is 07592833024 I was going to have a go at making a wooden keel for it I have a feeling it would cost a lot for a new keel to be made by polymarine but if you could let me know how much they say that would be great
