Patches done (had to repeat at least one of them) and the Fairlead fitted.
The Fairlead was a pain in the ass.
I messed up the placement of the first one and had to take it off, cut a new one, re-prepare and try again.
Even the second one was not happy adhesive wise where the fairlead crossed the strake... ie .. rubber on rubber!
Yes... it is ratchet strapped on in the pic, and the more observant will notice that the bottom section is being wedged on while the glue dries with a broom and a garden hoe!
