A5 Cockpit Seats

Having  decided that the cockpit seats need replacing . I set about ripping the old ones out  the reason for this was cracking either side  of frame work .

Good thing  I did as  a large section wasn’t glued.. on both seats.

Having removed the 6mm  3x ply  I am replacing with 9mm 7 ply Robbins elite This is much stiffer and  will not add any significant weight as modern ply is quite light.

Boat: A5 ** Interest: My father purchased Diaphony in 1977, having just sold Our Lysander 17 called Grebe and with two adults and three kids and a dog it was decided that we needed a bigger boat.Having looked at a few boats my father stumbled across Diaphony A5 at Chichester marina on its trailer,after a while the owner finally clinched the deal with my Father in a pub at Dell Quay . After a year spent renovating A5 she was ready for launching at Chichester .The boat was sailed for the remainder of the 70s and early 80's having crossed the channel many times ,she was returned home for minor work and hasn't seen the water since. ** Location: bucks ** Country: GB
