Hi. I am restoring a 1930 Richardson "Little Giant" which was totally rotton.
I have now reached a point where I need some advice.
The hull is made from Cedar and is approx. 18mm thick planks with nothing but some sort of putty between them, there is no caulking cotton.
The gaps in between the planks is approximately 1.5 mm.
What would you recommend to make a waterproof seal?
Can I simply fill them with putty and redlead and wait for the timbers to "Take up" when it goes in the water.
