removing bad part of a plank on a clinker built boat
by bill hadfield
I have removed all the copper rivets and can get some movement from the plank but I cant figure out how to cut the scarf joint in the 'good' wood part of the plank.
I am tempted to drill some holes and use a keyhole saw to just cut the 'bad' part of the plank and then try to 'spring' the remaining piece to allow a saw to cut the scarf.
I know I must be careful not to damage the old plank because it will be needed as a template.
My boat is an ex-onship life boat which has had a cabin built onto it
