Hi and greetings from Melbourne, Australia
A crack developed in the hull of my 2010 PA approx 6 months ago. The crack appeared between the 2 bolts that hold the rudder pulley on the right side of the cockpit. It appears that this point is stressed when raising the rudder, as the plastic flexes slightly.
My dealer removed the pulley, used a heat gun to close the crack, then added 2 large washers underneath the heads of the bolts before reassembling.
Unfortunately the crack had reappeared which is causing me some concern.
Any thoughts on my options for resolving this problem?
Any advice would be gratefully received
