    hi ....my first post!
    ok...I just picked up a SJ26.....the previous owner nailed a rock with her and managed to bust off the tube that the centreboat winch attatches to ....anyone ever dealt with this? I figure I can remove the stub of the post { it is bolted to the sole}...weld a new pipe onto it ...and put everything back the way it was ....just wondering if anyone has had to do this ...and how it worked out


    thanks
    Richard

    Sorry for the slow response. I missed your post. Not to many San Juan 26 around. On my sj26 the tube and base are threaded 1 1/2" galvanized pipe. Should be available at Lowes, home depot, or any plumbing supply.

    Ours is a 1977. Bought it 3 years ago. We are on the Ohio river in southern Indiana . I have basically had the boat completely apart so if you have any questions just ask. I also have the owners manual if you need a copy.
