1956 KLC Exhaust Elbow

Post by brent.gafford » Tue May 26, 2020 11:46 am

Is it possible to have these exhaust elbows refurbished?
Mine is cast. Wondering if I could send it off (if that is possible) if anyone has any recommendations?

If no option to refurbish what is best source for replacement?

Thanks!

What model boat is yours? There are bronze reproductions and that's what I did for my KLC. But, the hull design dictates the style (curvature/ angle).

Replace with a bronze elbow is best option. Jim Staib might help. www.finewoodboats.com

Metal stitching may be possible is it's cracked. But must be solid, enough material thickness and no previous repairs (Ie. welded) Frank Casey in Millbury MA has 40+ years experience stitching. 508 865 6613.
