Thanks for that. It sums up my feelings on it.
    I’d be interested to hear from any members who know that their saildrive gaiter is more than 7 years old and how comfortable they feel in the knowledge that it is past the manufacturers recommended replacement period.
    Visually the gaiter on “Sundance” looks in perfect order so my gut feeling is to leave it a year or two before replacing.
    Somebody please tell me I’m not being foolish?
