Accolade's C/B Sheevebox Replacement

Here is project to replace the centerboard sheeve box.  The main job was to replace the centerboard mechanism. Everything in the bilge was rotted out, including the centerboard lift. I think many WI36 owners can profit from this information. We had a new pulley fabricated, all stainless. The material including bolts was ~$110 with the welding being ~$160. The old system was held by two rusty bolts. There was always salt water in the bilge because the stainless pipe holding the c/b pennant had pin hole leaks, this was replaced with reinforced hose.
