Advice on repairs
Hi all

I've bought a 125 to learn to sail in and take part in some fun races. It needs a few repairs though. 2-pak on hull needs repainting, a few new fittings and the attachment point for the mainsail has snapped off of the top of the mast (?name -plate with eye that fits in mast).
where can I get parts in brisbane(particularly for mast part)?
Any good websites for diy boat advice(applying 2-pak to hull)?

Also, if I fit a sepatate forstay so I can raise/lower jib independently is it still ok to race?
